Topics of this game:
  • This nonferrous metal is white or white-silver in color. It's a soft, ductile metal that is much lighter than steel. An anodized surface is frequently found on this material.
  • In its pure state, this material is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color. This material has high thermal and electrical conductivity.
  • In its purest state, this is a soft, silver-white metal that closely resembles aluminum but weighs less. It readily burns with a brilliant white light.
  • This material has been used for incandescent light filaments for decades. It has the highest known melting point of any metal.
  • This steely-gray, lustrous metal takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point. It's commonly used as decorative plating.
  • This material is an alloy of copper and zinc.
  • This nonferrous metal is an alloy of copper and tin. Its most common use is in the manufacture of bushings.
  • This soft, bluish-white metal is commonly used as protective plating.
  • This white metal is used mainly for electroplating and as an alloy with steel. It's noted for its resistance to corrosion and oxidization.
  • This material's most common use is for plating steel, which is known as "galvanizing." It's used as plating because its resistant to oxidization.
