Metal Whiskey And Water..... Or Something...

a: Alloy ~
b: mixing two liquids, like whisky and water

What: "An alloy is like mixing two liquids, like whisky and water. It isn't always easy to separate the metals by physical means; you could separate water from alcohol by using their different boiling points, but some metals have very high boiling points, but in principle it's possible. So alloys are mostly crystal lattices which include more than one metal, which is what gives some of them very useful properties like hardness, springiness, resistance to cracking and metal fatigue, and resistance to corrosion, as in stainless steel."
