Question:

what is brass and steel used for and why?

what do we use steel for and whyand why do we use brass for instrumentsplz help its homework and i cant find the answer anywhere : (

Answer:

By instruments do you mean musical instruments? Brass is used for musical instruments because it's strong but very malleable. It's easy to hammer and roll into sheets, or form into tubes and complex shapes. It's easy to work with using hand tools. It's also very corrosion resistant and polishes very well. It has an attractive gold-like color. It also has some effect on sound, though the shape and design of an instrument is much more important to the sound than the material that's used. Apart from musical instruments, brass is used for items that need to be both durable, easy to manufacture, and resistant to the elements. For example plumbing items like valves and screw couplings.brass is a lot easier to cut with machine tools than steel. It's also traditionally used for hardware on doors and cabinets because of it's color, low friction properties, and corrosion resistance. Brass also is toxic to bacteria, and so brass doorknobs disinfect themselves after about 9 hours. Steel is very strong and very cheap. Steel is basically iron with a small amount of carbon added which makes it much stronger. Iron is the fourth most common element in the earth's crust, after oxygen, silicon, and aluminum. Brass being a mixture (an alloy) of copper and zinc, with other metals sometimes added. Copper and zinc are the 27'th and 26'th most common elements. Therefore, it make sense that brass is much more expensive than steel. Steel is used for too many things to be listed. The use of steel technology has impacts on almost every aspect of modern life. Nearly all of the man-made objects you touch on a regular basis were made using steel tools and steel machinery.
