Metallic structure and bonding

Metals form giant structures containing free electrons, making them good conductors of heat and electricity. Structure and properties Metals conduct heat and electricity because of the delocalised electrons in their structures. Conduction depends on the ability of electrons to move throughout the metal. The layers of atoms in metals are able to slide over each other and so metals can be bent and shaped. The strength
