Insulators Assignment Help

Assignment Help: >> Classification of Materials - Insulators


A material can be defined as an insulator if

1. This is a poor conductor of electricity,

2. This has high resistance of the order of mega ohms. Insulator is also called as dielectric material,

3. width of forbidden band is extremely large in energy band structure,

4. its σ /ωε is very small where σ is conductivity, ε is permittivity, ω is angular frequency (ω = 2π f).

Several types of insulator are: air, wax, vacuum, paper, sandy earth, pure water, bakelite wood, plastics, , glass, mica,  oil, rubber ,porcelain, etc.
