Are Metals Good Conductors of Electricity? Why?

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.
