Conductors provide a path for the flow of electrons, whereas insulators do not. In other words, we can say current can flow through conductors like copper, iron, and other conductive metals. Insulators like plastic, wood, rubber, etc. resist the flow of current. Aim here is to demonstrate the above-mentioned properties of conductors and insulators.

Learning Outcomes

  1. This experiment makes you understand about Conductors ability to provide a path for flow of electrons and the inability of insulators to do so.
  2. The kit makes the students familiar with electrical circuits
  3. Correlation between theory and practical becomes easier
