Electric Putty Properties

  1. Oct 31, 2013 #1

    I'm doing one of my physics HL coursework's (IB) on the behaviour of electric putty when conducting electricity. My teacher can't explain to me what electric putty actually is and I can't find it on the internet, so could anyone tell me if the conducting properties of electric putty are the same as those of a normal metal like copper? I mean the whole electron-movement thing? Or is electric putty an exception and something else is going on? I've spent ages looking on the Internet and I really can't find anything.

    Thanks already,

    Never heard of it. Is there a brand name or manufacturer's name? What's on the packaging?
