State differences between Conductors and insulators.

Dear student

Differences between a conductor and insulator

1. A conductor allows flow of electric current through it when a potential difference is applied across its ends while an insulator does not conduct electricity unless vert very high potential difference is applied across its ends.

2. A good conductor of electricity is generally a good conductor of heat, insulators do not conduct heat too.

3. Conductors have free electrons on its surface, insulators have bounded electrons on its surface.
4. Conductors allow flow of heat energy through them whereas insulators don't allow flow of heat energy

5.Example of conductor: Silver (Ag), Copper (Cu), Aluminum (Al) and Examples of insulators: Ebonite, Sulphur, Poly-vinyl Chloride.

Dear student,
here is the answer
The conductor and insulator are the types of material. One of the major difference between the conductor and insulator is that the conductor allows the energy (i.e., current or heat ) to pass through it, whereas the insulator does not allow the energy to pass through it.

Dear student,
The answer of your question is below

The conductor and insulator are the types of material. One of the major difference between the conductor and insulator is that the conductor allows the energy (i.e., current or heat ) to pass through it, whereas the insulator does not allow the energy to pass through it.
