Insulators (nonmetals) have a higher BE than metals, and it is more difficult for photons to eject electrons from insulators. Discuss how this relates to the free charges in metals that make them good conductors.

To determine

The reason due to which metals are considered as good conductors.



Insulator are that material which cannot pass electricity through them. They produce barrier for the current conduction within them also the binding energy of insulators are very high.

Insulator have high binding energy ,they hold electron very tightly . So, they are having less free electrons for current flow within them. Thus, it is difficult for photon to free electron from such high binding energy, current cannot flow within insulator...
