Conductors and Insulators
Without conductors and insulators, we wouldn't have MP3 players, laptops, televisions, or any other kind of electrical device. Electricity needs conductors to travel and insulators to contain it. These materials are integral in the harnessing of electrical power. In this accessible text, readers will learn what materials can be classified as conductors and insulators, as well as how they work together in devices. Semiconductors, plasmas, and their applications are also introduced.
