WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.
All metal*s are ductile : Metals can be melted and drawn into thin wires. Because of this property, metal*s are known as ductile. The ductility property follows from the malleability property (page 6). While being drawn into wires, metal*s are stretched. Because of the strong metal*lic bonds, the metal* atoms do not separate easily. Silver, copper, and aluminum are very ductile and very thin wires can be made out them.
