What is your favorite element on the periodic table and why?



  • So, it has been a very long time since I have made a topic but someone asked me to so here goes...

    I know this is kind of a niche question but I love the elements... so much that I am writing a novel about them but we are not here to talk about my book. We are here to talk about the elements.

    My favorite element is oxygen. I know what you are thinking, Oh my god, how boring. This guy picks the most common element in the universe. Actually, the most common element in the universe is hydrogen but whatever. There are a lot of subtle, little-known facts about oxygen which makes it so awesome.

    Like when you liquidize oxygen it becomes magnetic and is the color of the sky. Or the fact that there are two different forms of oxygen which make up our atmosphere. O2 which is what we breathe (along with a plethora of other gases) and O3 which is what helps protects us from dangerous solar flares from our sun. So, you can thank oxygen for keeping us alive in more than one way.

    Also... oxygen is highly reactive. I relate oxygen to that kid in school who is quiet and minds their own business then when some jerk pokes them with a little fire they explode and everyone is like, "wow, I didn't know oxygen was like that."

    Haha... so anyway, what is your favorite element and why?

    here is a link-



  • Ti - Titanuim

    Listening to titanium while Im driving to office earlier..
    I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
    Fire away, fire away
    Ricochet, you take your aim
    Fire away, fire away
    You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
    You shoot me down but I won't fall
    I am titanium

    Hehehe

    I really like the following elements.

    1. Tungsten: A steel-gray to tin-white metal. Filaments used for lights and electronics.
    2. Iodine: A bluish-black, lustrous solid that is a blue-violet gas. Found in seaweed and used in medicine.
    3. Latinum: A rare silver liquid, often plated with gold, used as currency by the Ferengi Alliance in Star Trek.
    4. Oxygen: An abundant gas that makes up 21% of the atmosphere. Extremely reactive and necessary for life.

    Thinking more of it, if we mix and match a little bit we get.

    Ha ha that works... if we are going to play that game then mine would have to be calcium and iron = Ca Fe - cafe because I do love hanging out at the cafes, drinking lattes like a hipster.

    Anyway, my favourite element is....Idk, Maybe Xenon.
    I like how it is the most reactive element from the 18th group. Like its stable, but even then, its the least one among the last group.
    And how it makes such sexy compounds with Oxygen and Flourine, which give such good hydrolysis.
    And also, I like Fe Co Ni, these 3 elements. The way they create anomaly in the transition series, and goddamn, once you see their borax bead test products, you are bound to fall in love with them.
    And not to mention all the elements showing diagonal relationships are smexy af except Li.
    Li is just boring lmao.

    Mines would be:

    Hydrogen, Oxygen, RadoN, Yttrium πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚ 😏

    ok ok... jokes asside, my favorite is Lithium (Li).

    @evan-elderson Helium. One of the reasons why there are stars to light our way.
    P.S. And it's funny when you inhale it and makes your voice sound cute.

  • @bela Well titanium is an awesome metal and used on all our flight safety critical items like rotor spindles, blade tip caps and leading edges, forward and aft shafts. it is important for these items to be indestructible but also lightweight.

    Who said it is boring? I think it is cool. If you cant breathe or may be you run out of oxygen, have you ever imagined how expensive you have to pay just for oxygen? 😨

    Like when you liquidize oxygen it becomes magnetic and is the color of the sky. Or the fact that there are two different forms of oxygen which make up our atmosphere. O2 which is what we breathe (along with a plethora of other gases) and O3 which is what helps protects us from dangerous solar flares from our sun.

    Indeed. This is a good pov.

    Also... oxygen is highly reactive. I relate oxygen to that kid in school who is quiet and minds their own business then when some jerk pokes them with a little fire they explode and everyone is like, "wow, I didn't know oxygen was like that."

    So, you like fire? A small fire like candle or a big fire? πŸ˜›

    Haha... so anyway, what is your favorite element and why?

    Well, i love water. I cant stay alive without water since i drink a lot of water. Water makes me chill when i am in the bad feeling and water makes me healthy.

    SEE I AM STILL AROUND JUDY

    What is wrong with that? thinking
    Is that because of my first confession to @WtfJudith around a month ago?
    Man, let it go. There is nothing personal with it.
    At the end, Judy chose her own decision. I still consider you as a good friend of mine. Just be a good friend with Judy like the old time.

    @evan-elderson I don't think I have a favorite element. I find all elements really cool in their own unique, special way πŸ˜„


  • Music Lovers

    @evan-elderson lmao i legit laughed when you said it becomes magnetic when we liquidate it.
    O2 is a paramagnetic molecule and its not at all interesting, so many other molecules show it too.
    Well, here’s an interesting fact though, Earlier paramagnetism was just associated with unpaired electrons according to the orbitals of atoms. Like before that, concept for a molecule possessing paramagnetism was not known, it was just valid for atoms. But when, paramagnetism in O2 was discovered, and it shocked everyone that it has even numbered electrons then why tf is it paramagnetic. That drove scientists to make the greatest concept that legit changed everyone’s perspective about electronic configuration, MOT. And well, the story behind MOT is even more interesting, defining the basic motives of science. It is my one of the favourite stories in scientific discoveries.

    Li is the most boring element evaaa.

    Because Li has really weak qualities in everything. Except when its not hydrated. Its just a disgrace to the alkali metals. Haha.





  • @g-a nah, I told Judy I wouldn't be on here as much, if at all.



  • That's easy! It must be Oxygen - I wouldn't last more than a few minutes without it and Carbon (C) being the basis of life as we know it, and in a very special and rare form makes a diamond.
