Conduction is the method of transmission of energy from one particle of the medium to the other but here each particle of the medium stays at its own position. Lead is a metal which is a bad conductor of heat.
- Lead (Pb) is a white lustrous metal with a soft texture and is highly malleable.
- The metal is highly corrosion-resistant, in addition to not being a poor conductor of electricity.
- The metal in its powdered form produces a bluish-white flame when burnt in air.
- Once mixed with fluorine in room temperature forms lead fluoride.
