    Find a materials science text book. It should have properties of metals, such as brass, which is a common copper alloy.

    Google on "Density of Brass".

    Google on "Brass products" and find a supplier of brass products.

    Use something like 8-8.6 g/cc.

    The most common brasses are red brass (~15% Zn) with a density of about 8.75 and yellow brass (~35% Zn), with a density of about 8.47 g/cc.

    A great resource on materials properties in Matweb . Use the search box in the top right.
