        Treasures of the Earth | Why Do Metals Conduct Electricity?

        Learn how metals conduct electricity, in this video from NOVA: Treasures of the Earth: Metals. Electricity is the flow of electrons. A visualization illustrates how metals are composed of an orderly arrangement of atoms with a sea of electrons that are able to move around. If a voltage is applied, electrons move from one atom to the next, producing electric current. This resource is part of the NOVA Collection.
