GCSE Physics


Glass and synthetic polymer* atoms* offer very considerable resistance to an electric current because a significant proportion of their electrons* are not free to move from atom to atom.

Glass and synthetic polymers, having very considerable resistance, are commonly used as insulators*.

A conductor's length, temperature, and cross-sectional area also affects its resistance.
