    Guys..how does the resistance of an insulator change as temperature increases?

    doesnt it decrease? cuz if u heat it long enough, it can conduct, or so i heard

    well if its a perfect insulator it should become less, because the atoms that are attached to each atom will have more enery therefor atoms will vibrate knocking of electrons which according to me should decrease the resistance

    one more thing, a current discharging graph looks just like a charging one, right? the exponential curve??

    Not sure about drift chambers, spark chambers work like this:

    There are pairs of conducting wires with great potential difference in the chamber. As the charged particle ionises the air,the ionised air will jump across the pair of conducting wires and that results in a spark. I don't have the details but that's all i know.(and i got this from discombob, so he has all the credits)

    When you increase the temp of an insulator to a certain extent, the atoms break down into ions, and then it'll conduct easily.. so resistance decreases.

    Thanks, creative! You mean atom breaks down into ion?

    Yeah, but that's if you increase the temperature high enough.. I'd assume if you raise the temperature only a little than the resistance would still increase since the atoms would vibrate more vigorously, causing further electron/atom collisions.

    Thanks a bunch, creative!! All the best in your exam! I think i'll just link you guys to this thread, it's really useful, to me at least. The common magnitudes in synoptics that we ARE expected to know.
