Conductors, Capacitors and Dielectrics

Topic Review on "Title":

Material where electrons are loosely bound and are able to flow throughout due to the free electrons. 

Materials where electrons are bound and don’t flow easily. 

Materials in between insulator and conductor.

A material where electrons flow without any resistance.  Generally, superconductivity only occurs at very low temperatures. 

An intrinsic property of a material that partially determines the resistance of a wire.

A device used to store or accumulate electric energy.  This is done by oppositely charging two nearby conductive surfaces that are not in contact with each other.

An insulating material is inserted between the plates of a capacitor. 

Dielectric Constant:
The factor that describes the additional capacitance gained by adding a dielectric material between the plates of a capacitor.

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

Materials may conductor charge flow, resist charge flow, or some variation between those two.  The resistance of a piece of wire depends upon several factors: the type of material, the length of wire, the cross section of wire, and the temperature of the wire.
Capacitors are oppositely charged sections of conductors held near each other.  Although they have a net charge, they store energy due to the proximity of the oppositely charged plates.  The strength or capacitance of a capacitor depends on the area of the plates, the distance between them, and a constant.  This capacitance could also be increased by adding an insulating material between the plates.  This is called a dielectric.
