Which do you think? Gold is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. The others are non-metals with localized electrons.


As I recall, gold has an extremely low resistivity; not so low as copper; again from memory, silver has a resistivity lower than copper. So why don't we use silver or gold for wiring?
