One thought on “Mysteries of the Malleable Metals

  1. Creative experiment to test a real life dilemma. Your testing method was good and I agree that a more accurate measuring system may have helped. Have you given any thought as to why the brass was less malleable than the copper? I really enjoyed reading this – great job!
