Examples of conductors include the human body, metals, aqueous solutions of salt, graphite, copper, silver and gold. Conductors are materials that can transfer heat and transmit electricity. Conductors have a high densit... More »

Uranium and Radon, the densest solid and gas respectively, are the best conductors of heat. The ability to conduct heat is called specific heat and is closely linked to density. The denser a material is, the closer its s... More »

Metals conduct heat well for two reasons: metal ions pack very closely together in their molecular lattice, and electrons drifting through the metal carry kinetic energy around the lattice. The result is a quick elevatio... More »

Although metals are supposed to be good conductors of electricity and heat, metals like mercury, lead, alloys of iron and chromium, titanium and stainless steel are poor conductors when compared to silver, copper and gol... More »

In general, metals like copper and aluminum are the best conductors of electricity. Good conductors are able to allow electrons to easily flow through. More »

In general, metals make good conductors of electricity. These include copper, gold, silver and aluminum. Copper is a common conductor of electricity used in industrial applications because it is inexpensive to acquire, e... More »

There is no metal that does not conduct electricity entirely, but there are some metals that are less effective conductors than others. Metal atoms have electrons in their outer shells that are not tied to any particular... More »
