a conductor of high resistance becomes more hot but for the flow of electrons the resistance should be less and electons flow and collide then heat is produced so how can a good resistor become more hot??

Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
Please don't confuse between conductor and resistance. A good resistance/resistor means an element which offer more hinderance for the current to pass. That is which makes more difficult for electrons to pass through it. Hence a good resistor becomes more hot.
On the other hand a good conductor allows electrons to flow easily or current to pass through easily. Thus a good conductor does not get heated up quickly.
