What is Copper?

Copper is a malleable, ductile, metallic element that has a distinct reddish-brown color. Industrially, copper is used in large quantities as an electrical conductor and in the manufacture of alloys, such as brass and bronze. Since copper is such an effective conductor of electricity, it is also routinely used in the production of electrical generators and motors, electrical wiring, and electronic goods, such as radio and TV sets. Copper is also an effective heat conductor that sees wide use in motor vehicle radiators, air-conditioners, and home heating systems.
