    What is the difference between copper and aluminum wires

    In terms of conductivity, a copper wire is about twice as conductive as an aluminium wire of the same diameter. It will also be heavier though. If you compare two wires of the same weight and length (but different diameters, because of diffenrent density) they will be more or less equally conductive... read more

    Why is copper wires considered over aluminum wires

    It's all about the reliability of the contact: when a copper wire is properly and securely terminated (and torqued to spec if called for) it is much less likely to fail than aluminum; aluminum wire can and does fail to contact due in part to it's thermal expansion and contraction, and to aluminum's ... read more

    What metals are generally used in electrical wires

    This is a very good question. In general, wiring in your home and in devices are pure (or at least 99.9% pure, due to difficulties of purification) copper. So, whether it's phone chargers, or microphones, it's all still copper. You will however feel a difference in the physical properties of the cab... read more

    Why is iron not used to make electrical cables and wires

    Primarily because iron has high resistance and corrodes easily, especially at junctions with other metals were Iron has a resistance almost 6 times greater than that of copper which means, in turn, that to carry the same current with the same voltage it will require cables with almost 6 times the cr... read more
