Answer:

Conductivity

Explanation:

Conductivity is the property of a material which describes the ease with which that substance permits or conducts heat and electricity through it.

Materials can either be good, poor or non-conductors.

Good conductors are those materials which allow heat and electricity to pass through them easily. Such materials are useful in making electrical wires and heating vessels. Metals are good conductors of heat and electricity.

Some other materials are poor conductors of heat and electricity as they do not allow heat or electricity to pass through them easily. Examples are air and water.

Some other materials are non-conductors as they do not allow heat and electricity to pass through them. These materials are otherwise known as insulators. They are useful in making things such as pot handles, electrical wire insulators, etc. Examples of insulators are plastic, rubber, wood, etc.

Someone in a car during a thunderstorm is safer inside because the rubber tires do not allow for the heat and electricity of the lightning to pass through the vehicle as it is a non-conductor of heat and electricity.
