Resistance is a measure of how well a material conducts an electric charge. Would you expect to find a high or low, level of resistance in a copper wire and why?

    low resistance because it has more free electrons (a.k.a not attracted that much to the nucleus) so when you connect it to an electrical current, the electrons move around the wire and the current can easily flow through the electrons ( a current is a flow of electron in itself)
