Some metals,p. 81 like cast iron, have absolutely no ductility.
A small quantity of tin, alloyed with silver, destroys its ductility.
Silver ranks next to gold in point of ductility and malleability.
What I mean is docility, ductility, sequacity—if there is any such word.
On the other hand, their malleability, ductility, and power of resisting oxygen is generally diminished.
