Dear Rushab Kasat,

In graphite, each carbon bonds with only 3 other carbons, leaving one free electron. That free electron is able to pass along an electrical current throughout the whole graphite structure.

 

The free electron is responsible for the conduction of electricity in Graphite !!!

Hope this informatiuon helped you immensely...

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you..
