# What are two physical properties that make metals the ideal material from which to construct electrical wires?

Well, as well as $\text{malleability}$, metallic bonding confers $\text{ductility}$...
And $\text{ductility}$ means that the material is capable of being drawn into a wire. And a second property that metallic bonding, metal ions in an electron sea, confers is electrical conductivity...and thus wires may conduct an electric current.
