Electrical Properties of soilds
Solids exhibit electrical conductivities that extend from 27 orders of magnitude ranging from 10–20 to 107 ohm–1 m–1.
Fig. Metal is used at the tip of the plug that is inserted into the socket
Fig. Wood and plastics are also solids but are insulators
A man touching the electric pole with a metal rod will get an electric shock because metal rod is a conductor whereas a man touching the same with a wooden plank will be safe because wood is an insulator.
