Answer . Since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and there are (currently) 111 known elements, therefore not every element can be represented by only 1 letter. Also some elements date back to antiquity and already have symbol names assigned by Alchemists, for instance, rather than being G…, gold is Au for the Latin word aurum for shining dawn. (MORE)

Actually its the other way around, why is K called potassium. The name is derived from the english word potash. The chemical symbol K comes from kalium , the Mediaeval Latin for potash, which may have derived from the arabic word qali , meaning alkali.
a conventional symbol in chemistry is symbols used to represent something for example and atom has electrons so the conventional symbold would be e round the atom to how many electrons it has.. example: oxygen the electrons is 10 so yu would put rings round the atom wiht 10 e's around it. hope thi…s helps (MORE)
The element that is the basis of Organic chemistry is certainly "Carbon". However don't forget that N 2 H 4 (Hydrazine) has although no Carbon but still classified as Organic. Carbon
Pure elements cannot have pH levels, as pH levels are defined byhydrogen ions. Specifically, if a substance is heavily acidic, itdonates hydrogen ions away, so if a substance has no hydrogen, itcannot do this at all.
Element symbols are a convenient way to represent an element. They are used in chemical equations to represent elements using very few characters. Additionally, element symbols are universally recognised, whereas element names are not consistent in every language; this is very helpful with communica…tion for chemists. (MORE)
They're all listed on the Periodic Table of Elements. Search it in any search engine.
The element lead , from plumbum , the Latin for soft metals such as lead. The words 'plumbing' and 'plumb line' come from the same Latin root.
Some elements use a symbol that is based on a Latin name (gold is Au from aurum ) or an earlier name (tungsten is W from "wolfram"). (see the related question)
Carbon is the most important element in life because it is the basic building block for all living life

The basic elements and symbols in chemistry are : . Carbon ---------> C . Chlorine --------> Cl . Hydrogen ------> H . Iodine ----------> I . Nitrogen -------> N . Oxygen ---------> O . Phosphorous --> P . Sulphur ---------> S . Silicon ----------> Si
Their symbol is created from their name. For instance, Ununseptium is element number 117. The label on most tables would be Uus. These normally get a new symbol once a more "Proper" name has been introduced.
Because the symbol is based on the Latin name of the element. For example, Lead, Pb, is plumbum in Latin.
Carbon would be the most important element in life. The table of organic compounds (those containing carbon) dwarfs the inorganic molecules (all other elements combined).
Organic Chemistry is the study of carbon-based molecules (although it is not strictly limited to them). The term "organic" is synonymous with carbon in the sense that all living matter is composed of carbon-based molecules.
\nChemical symbols describe the atomic makeup of a substance. Every known atom has a 1-3 letter abbreviation, which you can look up on a periodic table.\n. \nIn the case of CO2, C tells you that there is one carbon atom, and O2 tells you that it is bonded to two oxygen atoms.\n. \nChemical symbols… are pronounced using an arbitrary system that you can find using google. In general, it involves speaking the names of the atoms in the symbol, in order, and adding a prefix or suffix based on the number of atoms present, or the way in which they are bound.\n. \nIn the case of CO2, you pronounce it carbon dioxide, because there is one carbon and two (di-) oxygens. (MORE)
The symbol Co is the element cobalt. CO is the chemical compound carbon monoxide (carbon and oxygen).
(aq) means and aqueous solution. An aqueous solution is usually when a compound is dissolved in water(H 2 O). .
General chemistry is clearly as the name implies not a specific field of chemistry. It is rather a course that most individuals int he scientific community will take in order to learn the basic mathematical and analytical skills associated with more advanced chemistry. It just lays the ground work f…or years to come. (MORE)
Yes it is a science. General chemistry provides some basic principles, laws and equations upon which advanced chemistry is structured. General chemistry classes also prove useful in competitive exams.
\nIt depends on what you want to do in your life. If you want to go into politics, you should understand the effects of transfats or the source of acid rain. If you become a doctor, you need to understand how chemicals affect different parts of the human body. If you go into construction work, it he…lps to understand your safety sheets. The supervisors must understand what they mean. In one factory, a man who understood chemistry was able to cut the cost of a product to less than half by getting a more concentrated form and diluting in. Chemistry is like any other useful tool. You never know when you will never need an automobile jack to fix a flat tire. It is still important to know how to use so that you only sit by a roadside for a few minutes rather than hours. (MORE)
An element is anything found on the periodic table of elements. It is a substance which cannot be separated into other substances by ordinary chemical techniques.
its a thing in the world that makes up other things. A few are iron and argon and also my favorite is Uranium.
Do you mean a pure substance?????A pure substance is not mixed with any other substance and its tamperature remains the same during a state change.There are two types of pure substances:elements and compounds.An element contains only one kind of atom(e.g O,H,C,F)and a compound is formed for two or m…ore kindsof atoms(e.g CO2,H2O) (MORE)
A symbol in chemistry is defined as an abbreviation or shorthand sign for the full name of an element.
They usually begin with the letter that starts their Latin name (E.G., "aurum" = gold = Au).
Air is a mixture of a several gases. Primarily... . ~78% N2 (nitrogen) . ~21% O2 (oxygen) . ~1% Ar (argon) .
Chemical elements have chemical symbols not a formula. Examples: Ne, C, Ir, Fe, Zr, U, Pu, K, Na, Au, Sr, Mg, Ca, Li, Tc, Am, No, Rn, Ra, Th, B etc.
any organic chain, this is symbolized by R because it is not so much important what R is, but what is attached to R
In chemistry an element is a substance that is composed of atoms of the same type, meaning that those atoms have the same number of protons in their nuclei.
According to the general definition, base is any substance which gives OH - ions in water.
Physics is the basis of chemistry and chemistry is the basis of biology. One must understand how atoms interact to understand how molecules such as proteins interact to be able to truly understand drug interactions, how ions effect blood pressure, etc.
What element is made from the symbols for titanium and nitrogen It has 3 letters please answer asap this is for a chemistry project due next week thanks jonny?
This is not a serious chemical question, but the desired answer is probably tin, because the name of the element is a combination of the symbols for titanium and nitrogen: TiN. This does not mean that tin can actually be made from titanium and nitrogen!
the word chemistry is a pure chemical substance consisting of one type of atom distinguished by its atomic number , which is the number of protons in its nucleus . Familiar examples of elements include carbon , oxygen , aluminum , iron , copper , gold , mercury , and lead . hope that… was helpful! LOLA :P SPNS (MORE)
ng is not a symbol for any known element. If you mean nitrogen gas..that is N 2
Ca would be one, Fr another one. That is if by 'state symbol' you mean the Internet country symbol. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No, by State Symbol, he means the symbol which tells you which State of Matter the substance is in, for example; H20… is usually followed by (l) which means it's a liquid (s) = Solid (l) = Liquid (aq) = Aqueous [It's in a Solution, if I'm right] (g) = Gas (MORE)
It's a unit of measurement for the amount of substance, used when talking about an element's mass.
Dalton's symbols are not used in chemistry because it is very difficult to represent in chemistry
some elements do not use their first letters of their English names as their symbols. The symbols for these elements may come from the names of the elements in a different language.
The symbol Cp is used in organometallic chemistry to denote the cyclopentadienyl ligand. It was proposed as element symbol for copernicium (now symbol Cn), but since Cp was previously associated with the name cassiopeium (cassiopium), now known as lutetium (Lu), it was declined.
The reason why these elements don't correspond with their English names is because they are chemical elements in Latin. For example Potassium(K) is Kalium, Iron(Fe) is Ferum, and Sodium (Na) is Natrium in Latin.
The question does not make sense to me. However I think you are asking what elements are involved in organic chemistry. All organic compounds contain Carbon and hydrogen. Often Oxygen is incorporated and other common elements include Nitrogen, Phosphorus and sulphur.
H Hydrogen He Helium Li Lithium Be Beryllium B Boron C Carbon N Nitrogen O Oxygen F Fluorine Ne Neon
The unit of length in all the fields of science and technology, in SI, is the metre; the symbol is m. In chemistry and physics are used also sub-multiples as micrometre, nanometre, picometre, femtometre.
To distinguish between elements that start with the same letter.For example, Carbon, Chlorine and Calcium all start with the sameletter - their chemical symbols are C, Ch and Cl respectively. Itwould be extremely confusing to label different chemicals with thesame initial letter !
The atomic symbol for oxygen is O. The chemistry symbol for water is H2O. Water covers about 70 percent of our planet & is needed to support life. Without it, we would not exist.
Elements do not properly have more than one symbol, which is in international use. If the questioner means "why do some elements have single letter symbols, while others have two letter symbols?", one answer is simply that there are not enough single letter symbols: only 26 distinct letters to provi…de symbols for more than four times as many elements. In contrast, there are 26X25 or 650 distinct combinations of two letters without repetition. (MORE)
