Copper, from the Latin word cuprum, is an element that we believe has been mined for 5000 years. It is a transition metal on the periodic table (atomic number 29) with a reddish- brown color, that is malleable and ductile. It resists corrosion and is a good conductor of heat and has a high conductivity when it comes to electricity. This is why the main uses of copper are electrical. Because of its ductility, it can be used to make wires of varying diameters, and it is very strong. Copper can also maintain solidity at 1083C and boils at 2567C. Like most metals, as the temperature goes up, so does the resistivity.
Because of these factors, copper is widely used for electrical purposes such as household electrical wires, electrical machinery and generators and is able to withstand the elements to be used in outdoor power lines.
