Metallic bonding is what we do! Silver conducts electricity best, But I come in second, better than the rest. In addition to electricity, I conduct heat. I’m the hottest element you’ll ever meet.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
