Electric current can flow through metals. (True or False)



Metals are good conductors of electricity. So, an electric current can easily flow through them.Metals are an excellent conductor of electricity and heat because the atoms in the metals form a matrix through which outer electrons can move freely. Instead of orbiting their respective atoms, they form a sea of electrons that surround the positive nuclei of the interacting metal ions. The electrons then move freely throughout the electron sea.

  • Glass is used as an insulator because it has atoms that have electrons that are closely connected with each other.
  • Silver is the strongest conductor out of all known materials.
