for an insulator, it is important because it prevents people from getting an electrical shock from touching a bare wire. for a conductor, it is because they are needed to transfer electricity and the world revolves around electricity. for example, the device you use to see this answer requires electricity to work.
because it protects you
both are equally important. insulators keep the electricity from going where it is not wanted while conductors take electricity where it is wanted.
humans are not insulators, but are conductors!
insulators are conductors
because they protect you when grounding an object.
yes. you need both conductors and insulators to work with electricity. conductors such as wires provide a path for electricity to move where it is needed and insulators prevent electricity from dissipating, from being where it is not supposed to be and where it can cause harm and damage.
conductors conduct electricity. insulators do not conduct any electricity. most metals are conductors.
conductors are good conductors of heat ...where as insulators are bad conductors of heat......this condition also applies in the case of electricity ....
metals are good conductors of electricity. insulators are bad conductors of electricity. similarly, semiconductor devices are partial conductors of electricity means their conductivity lies between conductors and insulators.
the resistivity of semiconductors lies between those of conductors and insulators
the opposite of insulators is conductors
they are insulators
insulators: wood, plastic conductors: copper, gold
insulators are rubber or plastic but i don't know about conductors! sorry, hope it was helpful
conductors and insulators. in a conductor, electric current can flow freely, in an insulator it cannot. metals such as copper typify conductors, while most non-metallic solids are said to be good insulators, having extremely high resistance to the flow of charge through them.
insulators can shield electricity, while conductors help it move. insulators contain no free electrons to allow the flow of electricity.
no. insulators have higher resistance (lower conductance, 1 / resistance) than conductors.
the rails are good conductors the wooden ties they rest on are insulators
insulators will have a higher resistance.
they are moderately good insulators.
insulators are the complete opposite of conductors. insulators insulate the heat, but conductors let it pass straight through.
metals are good conductors!
they are conductors, not much for insulation though.
