The energy gap in a semiconductor is

  1. Equal to insulator
  2. Less than an insulator
  3. More than an insulator
  4. None of these


The energy gap in a semiconductor is

The energy gap in a  semiconductor is less than an insulator.

According to energy band theory, the energy gap between the valance band and conduction band is large in the insulator and small in semiconductors.

The energy gap between the valance band and conduction band in insulators is very large approximately 15 eV.

The energy gap between the valance band and conduction band in semiconductors is very small approximately 1 eV.
