Distinct means that it has different properties.
There is a way to identify a copper wire that is ionized from a copper wire that is not, a way to identify a distinction.
Please elaborate on this idea of the copper wire that is ionized versus a copper wire that is not, with examples of how to tell the difference.

You gonna back me up?
There's that non-descriptive word "electricity" again. Actually in DC (Direct current) it doesn't, but in AC (Alternating current) at low enough frequencies it's almost like DC so it still doesn't or at least it's not very noticeable, but as the frequency increases, it's the current that moves in a "skin effect" near the surface which becomes more pronounced as frequency increases. I call it current instead of "electricity", because most of the electrical power in transmission lines that deliver power to your home doesn't flow in the conductor at all, rather the electrical power is transmitted via electromagnetic fields which exist mostly outside the conductor.
Are you aware that electricity primarily moves on the surface of the conductor?

Since you can't respond in kind to a polite question I'll put it this way; If you knew anything about electricity you wouldn't try to apply hole flow in semiconductors to a gotdam copper conductor.
I've already posted sources for that. You have blown hot air.

No. I have looked for information that would back you up since you are unable to provide anything more than your own mistaken concepts.edit on 19-3-2014 by DenyObfuscation because: (no reason given)

There is a lot of space at the atomic level for an electron to slip about.
I suggest you start at the beginning.

Note: It is usual to use the term charge carriers to describe the particle that physically move when a current flows. In metals these charge carriers are electrons, in semi-conductors they may be electrons or 'holes', in an ionic solution both positive and negative ions move and in a gas both electrons and ionised gas particles move.
