Hello, I bought a new light fixture to replace an old one, but the new one doesn't have any wires.....just 3 terminals.....one is obviously for ground, because it has a green screw.....the other 2 are not labeled, and one is brass in color, the other is silver in color, which one does the hot(black wire) and common(white wire) goto?

Thanx

Black wire goes to the brass screw. White wire goes to the silver. This is true for receptacles as well.
