Which conductor is best?

"1. In this experiment I will be testing conductors of electricity to see which conductor is better at getting electricity more efficiently from one point to another. 2. This interested me because I have wondered if we are receiving all the electricity we put out or if we are losing some electricity before it gets to its destination. When I test my hypothesis I will be able to see what metal is conducting as much electricity as given. 3. The results for this experiment showed that after averaging my 15 trials, the cooper was the best conductor out of the three metals used. 4. This information can help engineers and electricians use the best type of conductor. "

One thought on “Which conductor is best?

  1. Thank you for including your log book with your project. This was a very controlled experiment doing more than just a few trials to test conductivity. That makes this a good project. But in your back ground research you mentioned other materials also make good conductors. In your experiment you used only 3 metals which you tested. Could you have found different metals to also test? Good project and keep up the good work.
