It is easily fusible (melting point 327.5[deg] C), forms alloys with other metals, and is an ingredient of solder and type metal. Atomic number 82. Atomic weight, 207.2. Symbol Pb (L. Plumbum). It is chiefly obtained from the mineral galena, lead sulphide.

2. An article made of lead or an alloy of lead; as: (a) A plummet or mass of lead, used in sounding at sea. (b) (Print.) A thin strip of type metal, used to separate lines of type in printing. (c) Sheets or plates of lead used as a covering for roofs; hence, pl., a roof covered with lead sheets or terne plates.

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Sugar \Sug"ar\, noun [OE. sugre, F. sucre (cf. It. zucchero, Sp. az['u]car), fr. Ar. sukkar, assukkar, fr. Skr. [,c]arkar[=a] sugar, gravel; cf. Per. shakar. Cf. {Saccharine}, {Sucrose}.]

1. A sweet white (or brownish yellow) crystalline substance, of a sandy or granular consistency, obtained by crystallizing the evaporated juice of certain plants, as the sugar cane, sorghum, beet root, sugar maple, etc. It is used for seasoning and preserving many kinds of food and drink. Ordinary sugar is essentially sucrose. See the Note below.

Note: The term sugar includes several commercial grades, as the white or refined, granulated, loaf or lump, and the raw brown or muscovado. In a more general sense, it includes several distinct chemical compounds, as the glucoses, or grape sugars (including glucose proper, dextrose, and levulose), and the sucroses, or true sugars (as cane sugar). All sugars are carbohydrates. See {Carbohydrate}. The glucoses, or grape sugars, are ketone alcohols of the formula {C6H12O6}, and they turn the plane of polarization to the right or the left. They are produced from the amyloses and sucroses, as by the action of heat and acids of ferments, and are themselves decomposed by fermentation into alcohol and carbon dioxide. The only sugar (called acrose) as yet produced artificially belongs to this class. The sucroses, or cane sugars, are doubled glucose anhydrides of the formula {C12H22O11}. They are usually not fermentable as such (cf. {Sucrose}), and they act on polarized light.

2. By extension, anything resembling sugar in taste or appearance; as, sugar of lead (lead acetate), a poisonous white crystalline substance having a sweet taste.

3. Compliment or flattery used to disguise or render acceptable something obnoxious; honeyed or soothing words. [Colloq.]

{Acorn sugar}. See {Quercite}.

{Cane sugar}, sugar made from the sugar cane; sucrose, or an isomeric sugar. See {Sucrose}.

{Diabetes sugar}, or {Diabetic sugar} (Med. Chem.), a variety of sugar (grape sugar or dextrose) excreted in the urine in diabetes mellitus; -- the presence of such a sugar in the urine is used to diagnose the illness.

{Fruit sugar}. See under {Fruit}, and {Fructose}.

{Grape sugar}, a sirupy or white crystalline sugar (dextrose or glucose) found as a characteristic ingredient of ripe grapes, and also produced from many other sources. See {Dextrose}, and {Glucose}.

{Invert sugar}. See under {Invert}.

{Malt sugar}, a variety of sugar isomeric with sucrose, found in malt. See {Maltose}.

{Manna sugar}, a substance found in manna, resembling, but distinct from, the sugars. See {Mannite}.

{Milk sugar}, a variety of sugar characteristic of fresh milk, and isomeric with sucrose. See {Lactose}.

{Muscle sugar}, a sweet white crystalline substance isomeric with, and formerly regarded to, the glucoses. It is found in the tissue of muscle, the heart, liver, etc. Called also {heart sugar}. See {Inosite}.

{Pine sugar}. See {Pinite}.

{Starch sugar} (Com. Chem.), a variety of dextrose made by the action of heat and acids on starch from corn, potatoes, etc.; -- called also {potato sugar}, {corn sugar}, and, inaccurately, {invert sugar}. See {Dextrose}, and {Glucose}.
