Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color. It is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys.

Mined and used for at least 10,000 years, copper is believed to be the third metal humans worked with, after gold and iron.

Since then, its applications and usefulness continue to be revealed. Copper's usefulness in alloys were first exploited with brass (zinc) and bronze (tin), which enabled the era of tools and weapons in human history, as early as 3300 BCE. In modern times, its electrical properties and high conductivity make it an essential element in electronics and computing. Copper is used in architecture, industry, surface treatment, medical, and marine applications. A common brazing and soldering material, it is most often used with gas metal arc welding. Its corrosion-resistance and antimicrobial properties are continually in demand for a wide range of spheres, including aquaculture, textiles, electroplating, coatings, and food technology.
