Hi   I have written to you before and have another question.  We did a
conductivity experiment in my class (Grade 7) with metals such as
brass., copper, aluminum, nickel and iron.  We used a metal bar with 
all the metals on it and the outside had wax on it.  The copper one 
melted the wax first.  I do not understand  what makes copper the best
conductor  Could you explain it to me.  Thanks
