Definition: a material that allows electrons to move easily between atoms
Extra Info: The placement of a material on the Electrostatic Series does not determine whether or not it is a conductor or not (since metals are not on the Electrostatic Series, and non-metals usually do not conduct electricity very well (except for the rare ones, such as silicon, which would be considered a semiconductor)).
Examples: Copper, aluminum, mercury (all metals) are conductors.
