    Because they are good conductors of electricity, the best one is Silver but is too expensive to use.
  • Suresh Ram

    Both metals have a low resistance to conductivity. They are extremely
    flexible and do not degrade under electrical transmission as do other
    metals. They are less expensive than the best conductors, silver and
    gold.

    Aluminium is a much lighter metal than copper - about 1/3 of the density and has better corrosion resistance.
  • Shubhanshu Jaiswal

    Copper is mainly used in low voltage applications.

    One advantage of coper over aluminium is that it can be soldered easily which is a big advantage in electronic devices
