Sheet Plate

What are some common applications of metals?

Also, for every application,
what properties of that metal make it suitable for that particular use?
And where can these metals be found? As in, what are their sources?
In addition, what are some problems encountered in using metals,
and what are the solutions to these problems?

THEY CAN BE USED FOR MAKING ELECTRODES (DUCTILITY)
EX - COPPER
THEY CAN BE HAMMERED INTO THIN SHEETS/PLATES (MALLEABILITY)
EX - IRON
THEY CAN BE USED FOR MAKING JEWELLERY ( THEY SHOW LUSTURE)
EX - GOLD

THESE CAN BE FOUND NATURALLY IN MINES.

METALS HAVE HIGH MELTING AND BOILING POINTS, SO IT IS DIFFICULT TO USE THEM FOR EXPERIMENTS.
ADDING OF OTHER SUBSTANCES TO THEM REDUCES THEIR MELTING/BOILING POINT.
EX - A WHITE POWDER IS ADDED TO GOLD TO REDUCE ITS MELTING POINT.
METALS ARE STRONG. SO THEY ARE IDEAL FOR LOCOMOTIVES. BUT DUE TO THEIR HIGH DENSITY, IT IS DIFFICULT FOR LOCOMOTIVES MADE FROM METALS TO MOVE AT VERY HIGH SPEEDS. USE OF ALLUMINIUM CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
