    Answer:

    1. Lead is more dense than Brass.
    You will find the densities of various metals at the following URL. Just copy it and paste in the address bar of your internet browser to see this table.

    http://www.simetric.co.uk/si_metals.htm

    Density of brass = 8400 to 8700 kg/m3
    (kg means kilogram, m3 means meter cube i.e. cubic meter.)

    It can be determined by various methods to ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution involves determining density of metals and identifying metals by density.
