This mechanical behavior is a result of the metallic bond. What happens when an object is bent? Some atoms are pushed together. Others are pulled apart. Still others slide past one another. We will focus on the atoms’ ability to slide by one another because this is an important determinant of mechanical properties. In a metal, each positive core is surrounded by an electron cloud. The positive core “feels” the attraction and repulsion of all the charges that make up the object, but what the core feels is greatly dominated by the electron cloud.
