Uses of Metals - II

We are already familiar with Metals

Metals are those who possess certain metallic properties like hardness, ductility, malleability. They are also conductors of electricity and heat

Here, we will discuss the uses of a few more metals

We begin with Copper

Copper is a heavy metal

And is a great conductor of electricity

Due to this, it is widely used in electrical wirings

It is also used to make water-pipes

Copper along with Iron is greatly used in construction

Houses, buildings, bridges and so on utilize the hardness and strength of these metals

We move on to Aluminium

It is the most abundant metal on the earth's crust

And it is comparatively lighter than other metals. But that does not mean it is less strong than them

That is why it is used in the construction of aircrafts

And satellites

Next, we have the precious metal Gold

Gold is a lustrous metal and is quite valuable

It is used to make jewelleries

Finally, we move on to Mercury

It is the only metal that exists in liquid state

And it is quite sensitive to temperature

That is why it is used in thermometers to measure subtle changes in body temperature

Revision

Metals are those who possess certain metallic properties like hardness, ductility, malleability. They are also conductors of electricity and heat

Copper is a great conductor of electricity. That is why it is used in electrical wires. It is also used in construction along with Iron

Aluminium is strong yet comparatively lighter metal. It is used to produce the body of aircrafts and satellites

The lustrous property of Gold makes it valuable and it is used in making jewelleries

Mercury is quite sensitive to temperature and is used to make thermometers

The End!
