Problem 12RQ

Why are metals good conductors both of heat and of electricity?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 12RQ There are more free electrons in metals, so they conduct heat as well as electricity properly. Generally the free electrons participate in the conduction process, so the more the free electrons one object has, the more heat and electricity it conducts. The dielectric constant for metals is infinite, this is another reason for which metals are good conductors of heat and electricity.
