Malleability means ability to change the shape of a solid
substance. It is the property of a solid substance to be able to take in
compressive or tensile stress and change its dimensions.
Usually it means that the material is hammered with a great force or rolled
between two strong high speed rollers to be converted into sheets or objects of
required shape and use.
Metals are malleable.
1. Malleability of steel, aluminum , tin , other alloys makes them useful
for making utensils, and containers for use in homes in kitchens.
2. Malleability of Gold, Silver makes them suitable for ornaments.
3. Industrial containers , huge sheets, many parts in machines are made because
of malleability of strong metals. Say even the railway wagons are made of
sheets because of malleability of the metals and alloys.
4. Malleability also allows for repairs of some metallic objects if
they are deformed.
