According to NEWTON, ice can conduct electricity, but it's a very poor conductor. Water doesn't conduct electricity; impurities in the water (ions) do, and ions don't tunnel around very quickly in frozen water. More »

Iron is a conductor of electricity. Its electrical resistivity is 9.71 microohm centimeter. In comparison to copper, it is a poorer conductor of electricity. Nevertheless, generally, it is considered a good conductor of ... More »

Graphite is a good conductor of electricity because its electrons are delocalized or free to move around. Graphite is structured into planes with tightly bound atoms. There is a great deal of distance between planes, and... More »
