The conductivity of brass is only 28 percent of pure copper. Copper is the standard against which electrical materials are rated. The conductivity of brass varies by the amount of zinc in it when it is created; the lower... More »

The list of most conductive metals includes silver, copper and gold. The conductivity standard of metal is based on silver, which is the most conductive of all metals. More »

Brass is a good electrically conductive alloy. At 68 degrees Fahrenheit, it has a low resistance at around 0.6 to 0.9E-7 Ohm meter. One of its component metals is copper, which is only second best to silver in electric c... More »

The thermal conductivity of brass is 109 watts per meter kelvin at 25 degrees Celsius. Generally, this measurement notes the ability of a material to conduct heat through it. Metals such as aluminum and tungsten and allo... More »

Copper is better than aluminum for electrical wiring because the electrical conductivity of aluminum is higher than that of copper. In the International System of Units, the electrical conductivity for aluminum is 3.5 x ... More »

Aluminum is conductive both thermally and electrically. Conductivity ratings are based on copper, which is the standard, and aluminum has a 61 IACS percent conductivity rating. More »

Some of the common units of conductivity are microsiemens or millisiemens per centimeter, as well as micromhos or millimhos per centimeter. One siemen is equal to one Mho when measuring conductivity. More »
