Metals are materials that are good conductors of electricity and heat. Metals make up a majority of the elements on the periodic table, and are classified as either base or precious. Base metals are more commonly occurring than precious and are used in nearly every aspect of modern life. They are an invaluable component of electrical engineering.

Forged parts of a revolver

Metals are materials that are good conductors of electricity and heat. Metals make up a majority of the elements on the periodic table, and are classified as either base or precious. Base metals are more commonly occurring than precious and are used in nearly every aspect of modern life. They are an invaluable component of electrical engineering. Industries as widely varied as transportation, construction, farming, communications, and medicine rely on metals.
