WHY wood or plastic is a bad conductor of electricity ?

Expert Answer:

Wood and plastic are bad conductors of electricity because electrons in them are bound to their respective 'parent' atoms and are not free to move. Therefore, wood or plastic does not possess freely movable charges; hence they cannot conduct electricirty.
