Give reason why graphite is used as an electrode in batteries$$.$$

Graphite is an excellent conductor of electricity due to the presence of high number of delocalized electrons which allow the electricity to pass through it rapidly$$.$$ Therefore$$,$$ graphite is used as an electrode in batteries$$.$$ Graphite does not interfere with the ions present in the solution and thus$$,$$ make it suitable for using it as electrode in batteries$$.$$
