What does malleability mean in science?

Report as

It can be defined as the property of a metal to be deformed by compression without cracking or rupturing. The load may be applied slowly or suddenly and will determine whether the material will be suitable for forging or rolling into thin sheet.

Im pretty sure it means how easy it is to bend any type of metal, like if a certain type of metal has high malleability then u can bend it easily
