Electrons... To be or not to be...

because it's not made of metal and metals are good conductors because of the their free valence electrons and in the case of transition metals, they have a d orbital which also contribute carrier electrons. There's also something about bandgaps being ...

Electrons... To be or not to be...

I know about conductors, but I don't see why the skin would be that resistant to a current of electricty. lol, That's why I asked. But okay, I'll google it.

Re: Electrons... To be or not to be...

I don't think humans are good conductors, who told you they were? They do conduct electricity but this does not imply a good conductor. The skin is actually a high resistance. The voltage drop across the body is rather large due to resistance, ...

Electrons... To be or not to be...

... with no electrons at all? Is there a constant flow of electrons in the air, if it's a compound? What about space? And considering people are good conductors of electricity are we neutral to one another? I'm just really curious... I don't know if these are stupid questions or not.

The Physics of how the Myelin Sheath actually works.

... when it has a myelinated sheath. It says on wikipedia that the sheath acts like a sort of insulator and dielectric (aren't dielectrics normally conductors though?). Now, a normal nerve cell is a capacitor, sitting at -70 mV when compared to the outside, if you add a myelin sheath, what will ...
