HARDNESS. Hardness is the ability to resist scratches and cuts. Diamond is a very hard material and chalk is a very softmaterial.
TOUGHNESS. Toughness is the ability to resist breaking.Steel and granite are tough material.Glass and porcelain are fragile.
PLASTICITY. Plasticity is the ability to change shape whithout breaking.
DUCTILITY. We can stretch some materials called ductuliy.For example:Gold.
ELASTICITY. Some materials return to their original shape this is called elasticity.For example:A sponge.
CONDUCTIVITY. Iron,conduct heat easily.They are thermal conductor. But wood are thermal insulators.
