User: why are materials with very high resistivity called insulaters

Weegy: A method for measuring resistance of a polarizing material, [ [ the method comprising: providing a voltage divider circuit having a first resistive element of known resistance and the polarizing material of unknown resistance that areelectrically-coupled in series to ground; electrically-coupling a processing unit to the voltage divider circuit; applying a voltage from the processing unit across said voltage divider circuit; measuring a voltage, using the processing unit, at ajunction between the first resistive element and the polarizing material; and shorting the polarizing material after the voltage has been measured and before a new resistance measurement is made by using the processing unit to ground the junctionbetween the first resistive element and the polarizing material. ] ]
