Is Brass a good conductor?

All metals and metal alloys are conductors of electricity. But metal alloys such as nichrome, manganese, brass have electrical conductivity much less than pure metal. So brass is a conductor but not good conductor.

Also to know is, can bronze conduct electricity?

Bronze is made from only metal atoms, so the type of bonding is metallic. The valence electrons are shared in a pool so they are free to flow, which allows them to conduct electricity. Metals do not dissolve in water.

Is Bronze a conductor or insulator?

Electricity flows through objects that are conductors and doesn't flow through objects that are insulators. Good conductors are generally made of metal such as copper, aluminum, silver, gold, brass, tin, and lead. Good insulators are often made of glass, plastic, rubber, ceramic, or cloth.

What is an example of a good conductor of electricity?

Conductors conduct electrical current very easily because of their free electrons. Insulators oppose electrical current and make poor conductors. Some common conductors are copper, aluminum, gold, and silver. Some common insulators are glass, air, plastic, rubber, and wood.
