How do you get the atomic weight of brass?
Brass does not have an atomic weight as it is an alloy. An alloy consisting of Copper (Atomic Weight: 63.546) & Zinc (Atomic Weight:65.38). This is why there is no Atomic Weight available for it. Once in a while a comparison of metals requires commonality. Such as if you were comparing the mass of a Brass item to say one of Lead (Atomic Weight:207.2). Mixtures of Brass vary from 5% Zinc to 45%. As you can easily see the weight of both Copper and Zinc are close in weight, and both are about 1/3 of the Lead. This would mean that if you were making a weight for say "skin diving" if you used lead instead of Brass the lead would be 1/3 the size and identical weight. I hope this had helped you.
