Homework Help: Is insulating and nonconducting the same thing?

  1. Sep 17, 2011 #1
    We're currently during e field due to continuous charges. I've only seen problems like blah blah the sphere is nonconducting/conduct, but I saw a problem that says the sphere is insulating, does that just mean it's nonconducting?

    As far as I know the opposite of conducting is insulating. So, yes.
