Brass is a gold-colored alloy of copper and zinc. Alloys are a merging of two different metals, or they can be a metal combined with an element. Brass also contains approximately 2% lead, which is added to improve mach-inability. Brass is commonly used in decorative, mechanical and architectural functions. Brass can be found in locks, gears, door knobs, valves, plumbing fixtures, electrical appliances and musical instruments.
