These qualities are useful because aluminum can be bend into the any shape, its light and it's not poisonous. Aluminum can also be used to make airplanes. Aluminum is very light and malleable, making it ideal to make a plane because it can be bend into any shape. An aircraft needs to be light yet strong and aluminum can fulfill these requirements. Lastly, aluminum can be used in electrical transmission lines. Aluminum is an excellent conductor of electricity and it 's malleable. This is useful because it will safely conduct electricity and can be formed into the shape of a wire.
