Conductors & Insulators

#) Conductors: Conductors are materials that permit electrons to flow freely from particle to particle.

 An object made of a conducting material will permit charge to be transferred across the entire surface of the object.

#) Insulators: Insulators are materials that impede the free flow of electrons from atom to atom and molecule to molecule.

If charge is transferred to an insulator at a given location, the excess charge will remain at the initial location of charging.
