GCSE Physics


All conductors* offer resistance to the flow of current*. This resistance is determined by the conductor's atoms*.

For example:

Silver and copper atoms offer negligible resistance to an electric current because a significant proportion of their electrons* are free to move from atom to atom.

Silver and copper, having negligible resistance, are commonly in used as conductors.
