Difference Between Superconductor and Semiconductor

What is an electrical conductor? A material that permits the flow of electrical current is referred to as an electrical conductor. There are a variety of electrical conductors, but we will be focusing on two types which are semiconductors and superconductors. The key difference between a semiconductor and superconductor is that the conductivity of a… Read More »

Resistance vs Conductance

The opposition to flow of electrons (due to bonds between protons and electrons, as well as to collisions) is called a electrical resistance (R). Or Resistance may also be defined as “The property of the electric circuit which opposes the flow of current”. The practical unit of electric resistance is ohm (.Q). It (ohm) is… Read More »
