Properties of Conductors and Insulators:
This unit provides the basic characteristics or properties of the most common materials which are classified as semiconductor, conductor and insulator.
In this unit, we have introduced you with several definitions, applications and properties of, insulators, conductors or dielectric and semiconductors. Here we have described semiconductors properties in short. In next sections of this unit you have seen acquainted with the basic elements of electrical engineering such like, inductors, resistors and capacitors. Important electrical properties of materials such as resistance, inductance and capacitance have been discussed in detail.
