An electrical conductor conducts electricity. The ability to conduct electricity is called electrical conductivity. An excellent electrical conductor has high conductivity and low resistivity. Electrical resistivity is the reciprocal/opposite of conductivity.
Prominent electrical conductors include:
- Human skin
Some materials are resistors. This means electricity does not easily flow through them.
Some materials when very cold, are superconductors. They offer no resistance at all to the flow of electricity.
Most conductors' resistance becomes higher at higher temperatures.
