Silver, copper, gold, aluminum are the most electrical conductive metals.
All metals are conductive. That is part of the definition of metals
No. Copper is the second most elkectircally conductive of all metals. Silver is the most conductive.
All metals are conductive, and some non- metals are conductive such as Carbon.
Most conductive of sound waves would be Beryllium, on account of its Young's Modulus.Most conductive of magnetism would be soft iron, because of its magnetic permeability.The metal most conductive of electricity is silver, though there are things more conductive of both heat and electricity.
Silver, gold, copper platinum.
Metals and metalloids are conductive.
they are called conductive metals
Aluminum is a metal, so yes it is conductive; however, it is not as conductive as some other metals.
None - unless they're in the oxide form.
Many metals are very conductive regarding electricity.
Yes they are.
All metals are conductors of heat and electricity.
All metals are electrically conductive.
It's a metal, and one of the properties of metals is that they're conductive, so yes.
Yes all metals conduct heat and electricity.
There are no non-conductive metals. What makes something a metal is that it has electrons that are free to move about its volume rather than being bound to a particular atom, and that is also what makes metals conductive, so conductivity in metal is unavoidable. Certainly, some are less conducive than others. The least conductive metal is plutonium at 6.66x10-4 Ω·cm. This is about 10 times better than the most conductive non-metalic element, carbon, at 6.1x105 Ω·cm. (Carbon, in turn, is about 300,000 time more conductive than the next best non-metal, tellurium.) Alloys tend to be less conductive than pure metals. There may be some alloys less conductive than carbon (but not less than tellurium.)
all metals in pure form are conductive, that's because they will always have free electrons circling around them ready to be used as electricity.
Yes, all metals are conductive.Platinum's conductivity 94.34 1/mohm-cm
yes metals are the best conductors
electrically and thermally conductive
Yep. All metals are.
All metals are conductive.
All metals conduct electricty. Just that some do so better than others. But, some metals quickly develop a non-conductive oxide coating, and this coating can be a poor conductor.
