What is the best way to melt ice?

The best way to melt ice is to get a flame thrower!!!!!!!Just kidding the best way to melt ice without getting beat by your guardians is simply by adding a type of chemical that would speed up the molecules inside of it.A good example of this would be by simply using salt or sugar {yes sugar melts ice but it is slower than salt}.


Why is copper used to wire homes for electricity?

Besides the fact that it is has to be used in most municipalities to meet code it is used because of its conductive properties. Copper as compared to other metals (certain alloys not withstanding) has the second highest potential to carry electricity ( the number one seat being given over to silver). due to its relative cheapness compared to silver its workability and its durability it is one of the best choices for home wiring. You may find in some older homes or in commercial applications the use of aluminum wire( may also be used as the main service feeder for a house). The use of aluminum wire came around when the price of copper skyrocketed years ago but since it has come back down in price copper is the way to go. The other reason copper is used is that aluminum wire only conducts at about 75% of the potential of copper therefore requiring you to actually have to use larger gauge wire.

What is the price of scrap copper wire?

No 1 bare brite copper wire is around $3 per pound No 1 copper wire scrap is around $2.87 per pound Update for June 1 2011 these are some average prices for various scrap copper wire prices #1 Bare Bright Wire $3.55 /lb. #2 Copper Tubing/Wire (Tin Coat) $3.05/lb. Insulated Copper Wire $1.10/lb. Insulated Cable $2.35/lb. The best way to get the most from your recycling prices is to strip your scrap copper cable. Otherwise you will get paid less at the scrap yard. There are many websites that provide copper wire scrap prices as the prices do vary on a daily basis and region to region. Like the two links below.

Should a copper wire be used as a fuse wire if not why?

No, Copper wire should not be used as a fuse wire, because by doing so you are ignoring the main purpose of a fuse. A fuse wire is made in such a way that it melts if some current exceeding a safe operation current flows through it and the circuit becomes open. But a copper wire do not work in that way and using it in a fuse can destroy the home appliances if any thing odd happens. <<>> Copper wire can be used as fuse wire provided it is of the right thickness to fuse at the desired current limit. But copper is not a good material to use because it has a high melting point. Fuse wires normally use a material such as tin with a lower melting point which is safer in use.
