Español: Conductor / Português: Condutor / Français: Conducteur / Italiano: Conduttore
Conductor or conduction may refer to a person who sells and checks tickets on a bus, train, etc. or an underground railroad.

In the industrial and industry context, a "conductor" typically refers to a material or component that allows electricity or heat to flow through it with little resistance. Here are some examples of how conductors are used in industry:

  1. Electrical power transmission: Conductors are used in overhead power lines to transmit electrical energy from power plants to homes and businesses. Copper and aluminum are commonly used as conductors in power lines.

  2. Electrical wiring: Conductors are used in electrical wiring to connect electrical devices, such as switches and outlets, to a power source. Copper wiring is commonly used in residential and commercial wiring applications.

  3. Heating and cooling systems: Conductors are used in heating and cooling systems to transfer heat or cold from one area to another. Copper tubing is commonly used as a conductor in HVAC systems.

  4. Electronics: Conductors are used in a wide range of electronic devices, such as computer chips and circuit boards, to transmit electrical signals. Copper and gold are commonly used as conductors in electronics.

Similar things to conductors in the industrial context include insulators, which are materials that do not allow electricity or heat to flow through them, and semiconductors, which have electrical conductivity properties that fall between conductors and insulators.
