what is meant by the term "dielectric"

Asked by  | 2nd Feb, 2012, 09:29: PM

Expert Answer:

A dielectric material is a substance that is a poor conductor of electricity, but an efficient supporter of electrostatic field s. If the flow of current between opposite electric charge poles is kept to a minimum while the electrostatic lines of flux are not impeded or interrupted, an electrostatic field can store energy.
