Capable of being extended or shaped by beating with a hammer, or by the pressure of rollers; -- applied to metals.
Capable of being influenced to behave as desired; tractable; -- used mostly of children.
Formable or ductile.
Easily hammered and flattened when cold; refers to metals.
Capable of being shaped by a beating or rolling process.
The property of metals being deprived of form, accepting deformation under pressure, hammering or rolling without breaking.
From the Latin 'malleare', to hammer, the quality of metal that allows it to be easily shaped or formed, by hammering or through pressure.
Can be hammered into thin sheets. See What Makes Gold Gold?.
capable of being shaped or bent or drawn out; "ductile copper"; "malleable metals such as gold"; "they soaked the leather to made it pliable"; "pliant molten glass"; "made of highly tensile steel alloy"
term used to describe metals that can be hammered, pounded or pressed into various shapes.
Having the property of being deprived of form, accepting deformation under pressure or hammering without rupture or fracture.
Literally, cabable of being worked by hammering, so that the material's shape can be extended by the application of mechanical force without breakage. This shape change should be permanent. Some materials must be heated to have this property. A more modern term is plasticity.
Physical property of a metal which allows it to be hammered into very thin sheets without being subjected to structural damage. Gold is the most malleable metal.
the ability to be hammered into sheets
A property describing metals that can be pressed, hammered, formed, rolled, bent, etc.
Describes a substance that can be shaped by hammering or by pressure from rollers.
The ability of a metal to be hammered without breaking.
Capable of being altered or controlled by outside forces.
Metals are malleable. This means they can be hammered into sheets.
can be hammered into a sheet.
Malleable metals are easily worked with a hammer or a roller. gold and sterling silver are very malleable metals.
malleability. Compare with ductile. Capable of being hammered into sheets. Metals are typically malleable materials.
Formable or easily shaped.
Of metals, capable of being formed into new shapes by hammering and bending.
Able to be shaped or bent.
If a material is malleable it is capable of being hammered or pressed out of shape without being likely to break or return to the original shape. Classifying materials
The ability to be hammered, pounded, or bent into various shapes without breaking. Metals and other substances that are soft and pliable.
Capable of being easily shaped or formed, malleable metals can be worked with a hammer or a roller. Gold and sterling silver are very malleable metals.
