  7. Semiconductor
    A material in which electrons can move fairly easy from atom to atom. Image Upload 6
  8. Ground
    Something that can absorb a huge amount of electrons from a negatively charged object as well as supply a huge amount of electrons for a positively charged object and therefore making the objectImage Upload 7s neutrally charged when it comes in contact with it.
