Today, in almost every field, metal is a compulsory material. The metals are used in various industries like electronics, medicine, building construction, jewelry and clothing, machinery and automobiles, farming, cooking, furniture, security systems and more.
What are Metals?
Metals are opaque, lustrous elements that are good conductors of heat and electricity. Thy are strong but malleable, which means that they can be easily bent or shaped.
Strength of a metal is examined by several properties such as:
- Tensile strength: How well a metal resists being pulled apart.
- Comprehensive Strength: How well a material resists being squeezed together.
- Yield Strength: How well a rod or beam of a particular metal resists bending and permanent deformation.
- Impact Strength: Ability to resist impact without shattering.
None of the metals are as hard as a diamond or as tough as graphene, but these carbon lattice structures are not metals.
