What Are the 10 Most Conductive Metals?

Answer

Conductivity is a term used to describe the process by which a substance transfers electrical, acoustic or thermal energy. Different metals have different degrees of conductivity. Copper is considered the most electrically and thermally conductive of all metals.

The most conductive of all metal is silver and is also the lightest reflecting element. Other most conductive metals are such as pure copper, pure gold, aluminium, zinc, nickel, brass, bronze, pure iron and platinum.
The most electrically conductive metal at room temperature is silver. Some metals exhibit superconductivity when cooled to low enough temperatures, including mercury, aluminum, and tantalum. In this case, electrical resistance goes to zero and conductivity to infinity.
The most electrically conductive metal element is silver. Second on the list is copper followed by gold. Silver is also the most light reflective metal. It is interesting to note that even when silver is tarnished, it is still the most electrically conductive metal.
