Metals usually conduct heat properly, and in stable form are comparatively malleable and ductile in comparison with other solids. any of a category of elementary substances, as gold, silver, or copper, all of that are crystalline when solid and plenty of of that are characterized by opacity, ductility, conductivity, and a unique luster when freshly fractured. The mechanical properties of metals, corresponding to hardness, capability to resist repeated stressing (fatigue power), ductility, and malleability, are sometimes attributed to defects or imperfections in their crystal structure.

The absence of a layer of atoms in its densely packed structure, for example, enables a metal to deform plastically, and prevents it from being brittle. According to this concept, the individual atoms in such metals have lost their valence electrons to the whole solid, and these free electrons that give rise to conductivity move as a … Read More
