Use this quizlet to review the vocabulary from the conductors and insulators and circuits lessons!
Terms in this set (9)
A material through which charges can easily flow; a material that allows electrical current to flow; conductors are usually metals
A material through which charges cannot easily flow; a material that does not allow electrical current to flow; insulators are usually nonmetals
Sea of electrons model
the outer electrons are free to move between the atoms - hence conduct electricity- the electrons act as electrostatic glue holding cations together
a device that slows the flow of current and, as a result, heats up when current passes through
an electrical device that provides a path for electrical current to flow
a circuit with no gaps or breaks that allows the current to flow
a circuit that has a gap or break that prevents the flow of current
a closed circuit in which the objects are connected in a single path; the electric current can only follow one path
a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more paths before recombining to complete the circuit
