Atoms Of Copper Contain Electrons And Atoms Of Rubber Also Contain Electrons

The atoms of copper contain electrons and the atoms of rubber also contain electrons. Then … electricity but rubber does not conduct…


Copper has free electrons that are loosely held by the nuclei of the atoms. These free electrons result in conduction of electricity. The electrons present in rubber are strongly held by the nuclei of its atoms. So, rubber does not have free electrons to conduct electricity.
