Give two examples each of conductors and insulators of heat.

AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 7

To do:
To give two examples each of conductors and insulators of heat.

Solution:
Before writing examples let us know a little about the conductors and insulators of heat:

Conductors of heat:
The substances through which a good amount of heat with minimum losses of heat can flow(conducts) are known as conductors of heat.

Insulators of heat:
The substances through which the heat can not transfer easily are the poor conductors or insulators of heat.

From the above given definitions of conductors and insulators of heat we can give two examples of each easily. Following are the examples of conductors and insulators of heat:

Examples of good conductors of heat:
The followings are the materials$(such\ as\ metals)$ that are good conductors of heat.
1. Copper 2. silver are the examples of good conductors of heat.

Examples of Insulators$(bad\ conductors\ of\ heat)$ of heat:
The followings materials are the poor conductors$(Insulators)$ of heat.
1. Glass, 2. Plastic are the poor conductors$(Insulators)$ of heat.
