Background[edit | edit source]
Wires are thin, flexible strands of metal that snake through countless electronic devices, city streets, and the walls of buildings. Wires can function on their own or be bound (known as "stranded") together with other ones. Most wires are used to carry electricity, telephone and Internet signals, and heat. Strong, durable wires are used to support suspension bridges, make chain-fences, and lift elevator cars. Thinner wires are often used in stringed musical instruments, pottery-making, paper clips, and hairpins. Very thin wires are used in the production of the infamous incandescent light bulb.
