insulators does not allow flow of electric charges at all.. Bad conductors are those which can conduct electricity but offers more opposition (resistance) to the flow of current compared to the flow of current in a good conductor.

all dielectrics are insulators , but all insulators are not dielectric

but then some book say 'dielectric are insulators'

yes, all dielectrics are insulators, they don't allow the flow of electric charges through them bad :Drinking water,iron insulators:kerosene, umm...let me think

A dielectric is an electrical insulator that can be polarized by an applied electric field.

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because of polarization , positive charges are displaced toward the field and negative charges shift in the opposite direction.

yeah i knw that,,,, i wanted to knw what will happen when it is introduced in conduction process

they won't conduct, instead they will store the energy in them.
