Discussion 3 – Atoms

Welcome to chemistry!
Chemistry is called the central science because it provides a bridge from the math and forces or physics that tend to have exact numbers and predictable phenomena with the complex conceptual world of biology.
This week’s first discussion will focus on chemical elements, the smallest building blocks of everything that contain unique properties. 
For your initial post, choose an element with atomic number greater than 20. In a minimum of two paragraphs explain how this element plays a major role in human society. 
The first paragraph should contain the physical properties of the element, including weight, # of protons, electrons & neutrons and other important elemental stats.
The second paragraph should focus on what applications the element has in society.
Each element can only be used once, so check to make sure it hasn’t been claimed before your write your post. (Iron and Titanium (Ti) have been used)
