Graphite is conductive though.

I'm not sure what you're saying. Graphite is a semi-metal, and it is conductive.

Also, your assertion to say graphite = carbon is incorrect, because since graphite is an allotrope, it has differing conductive properties.

graphite is just carbon though
graphite is a molecule made of 100% carbon atoms nothing else
it is a conductor though thats obvious

I know. What this guy was saying though, was that graphite is as non-conductive as carbon since it's made up of it, which I was refuting.

But you were saying that graphite is a non-conductor, which it isn't. So comment #1 was right, and you could do the same with a pencil.

Also, a semimetal isn't the same as a metalloid. The term metalloid only applies to a chemical element, whereas semimetal applies to the electronic band structure of a substance.

So: carbon is a metalloid, and graphite is a semimetal.

I don't know why it wouldn't.

it wouldn't because though it is a conductor, it's a really bad conductor and will produce lots of heat, the current will not go too far unless it's really strong.

saying graphite is a conductor is like saying the human body is a conductor, yeah it works but it's not efficient.

no it's not semi-metal whatever that means did you mean metalloid? , it's just that the molecular structure has a free electron for every carbon, these free flowing electrons allows graphite to conduct electricity.

Did you even read the thread? It is a semimetal, not a metalloid.

Although I do agree with you, I tried getting current through a very dark pencil - graphite circuit (tried with over 10 pencils), and could not for the love of science get enough current to pass through. When drawn out, it is so resitive its not even funny.

Standard graphite in #2 pencils can do the exact same thing... I'm fairly sure this is some kind of graphite ink. I remember doing a science thing with #2 pencils when I was younger, and I managed to play a beep with a specific pitch based on how much I squiggled a pencil on paper.
