That's a pretty vague question, but Plutonium, Uranium, or Hydrogen would be the most dangerous due to their use in Nuclear Weapons.
Cyanide is a very dangerous chemical. This chemical prevents oxygenation of the body from blood, killing the body. In short, blood carries oxygen, cyanide prevents blood from …carrying it, and no oxygen=dead.
The Pyroclastic cloud. It is made of lots of volcanic dangerous gasses and ash.. Pyroclastic flow.
Plutonium is extremely toxic and has radioactive isotopes that have very long half lives. Polonium was used to kill Alexander Litvinyenko in London about 2 years ago
Although a reasonable and simple question, this query is difficult to answer because elements are dangerous for different reasons. Following are only some ways in which elemen…ts can be dangerous. . Toxicity Technically, anything is toxic (even water) if consumed in large enough quantities. Following is an incomplete list of known toxic elements. ( Source: http://chemistry.about.com/od/toxicchemicals/a/toxicelements.htm ). Elements marked with an asterisk (*) are both toxic and radioactive. . Aluminum . Americium * . Antimony . Arsenic . Barium . Beryllium . Cadmium . Hexavalent Chromium Cr 6+ . Lead . Mercury . Osmium . Polonium * . Radium * . Thallium . Thorium * . Vanadium . Uranium * . Radioactivity There are also many radioactive elements, which may also be harmful, even if they are not toxic. The danger due to radioactivity depends upon both the half life of the element, as well as the decay mode. According to Rankopedia, the most dangerous radioactive elements are, in order: . Plutonium . Uranium . Polonium . Fancie . Radon . Neptunium . Technetium . Astatine . Californium . Einsteinium . Radium . Berkelium . Bismuth . Americium . Thorium . Mendelevium . Dubnium . Curium . Roentgenium . Ununquadium . Actinium . Ununoctium . Seaborigium . Protactinium . Reactivity Elements that are highly reactive are more dangerous because the interact, sometimes violently, with many common substances, including water. The resulting chemical reactions can be harmful or fatal, depending upon the circumstances. Reactivity is always between two or more elements, so there is not necessarily one single most reactive element, however the more reactive elements include: . Fluorine . Cesium . Francium . Bromine . Potassium
Short Stories - Literary Devises Title: The Most Dangerous Game Point of View: 3rd person full omniscient Protagonist: Rainsford What type of character is the Protagon…ist? Round and dynamic. Antagonist: General Zaroff Describe the setting The setting was on Ship Trap Island owned by General Zaroff Type of Conflict: Man vs Man Describe the main conflict: The main conflict was Man vs Man because it was head on from Rainsford being "the hunter gets hunted", while General Zaroff is the hunter. General Zaroff did not dislike Rainsford and hunted him, but because Rainsford is athletic, and bright, he tries to kill him in his game. Describe the Climax of the Story: The climax of the story was when Rainsford was swimming back to Zaroffs home, after getting chased by all Zaroffs hounds, and killing Zaroff. How does the Protagonist change over the course of the story? The protagonist changes from just being confused, and stuck on an island, to being hunted, and wanting to get off the island knowing that Zaroff is a murderer. Describe the relationship between the title and the theme. The title "The Most Dangerous Game", and the theme "Cruelty" are related because "The Most Dangerous Game" in this story is only possible with cruelty, and the game involves weapons, and hounds chasing after the victim. How does the main conflict help to illustrate the theme? The main conflict of Man vs Man helped illustrate the theme of "Cruelty" because Zaroff made Rainsford play a cruel game with him, in which Zaroff tries to kill Rainsford, but in the end, Rainsford is a bit cruel, and kills Zaroff. How does the climax help to illustrate the theme? The climax of the story of when Rainsford kills Zaroff helped illustrate the theme of "Cruelty" because Rainsford thinks that this will end his cruelty in his killing game, but he is a bit cruel himself because he also murders a man. Give examples of each of the following literary terms in the story (use quotes): Simile: "Tomorrow you'll feel like a new man, I'll wager." Metaphor: "I have played the fox, now I must play the cat of the fable." Personification: "...the dead tree, delicately adjusted to rest on the cut living one..." Symbol: Gun was a symbol of death. Foreshadowing (give both elements): There was a lot of foreshadowing in this story. Once hearing about General Zaroffs disastrous game, we the readers would expect the game to be played on Rainsford. Irony: The irony of this story was when Zaroff wants to hunt with Rainsford, but Rainsford ends up being the one that is hunted. Imagery: "The dining room to which Ivan conducted him was in many ways remarkable. There was a medieval magnificence about it; it suggested a baronial hall of feudal times with its oaken panels, its high ceiling, its vast refectory tables where twoscore men could sit down to eat." Describe the relationships between the class theme and the story. The class theme of "Humanities" is related to this story because some "things" did not satisfy Zaroff so that he had to start hunting his own species. This seems unhuman, but Zaroff has many emotions over this. Zaroff seems proud of himself hunting every sailor successfully, but I believe that he feels hurt in the inside.
I think it can be used as making potassium cyanide (KCN) which is a harmfull and dangerous poison. It can be used to form CO i.e. carbonmonooxide which is also a toxic gas
Plutonium is the most dangerous element you can handle because it is highly radioactive. Just inhaling a small amount of plutonium dust will give you lung cancer. However, plu…tonium is rather hard to come by so the most dangerous element you will probably come into contact with is mercury. Mercury is highly toxic and should never be handled without proper lab equipment and safety measures.
Yes, because curium is strongly radioactive.
In Environmental Issues
Disadvantages of uranium: 1. Uranium is a possible polluting agent of the natural environment. 2. Uranium is a toxic and a radioactive chemical element. 3. Uranium releas…e radium and radon. 4. Radioactive wastes are dangerous and need to be isolated.
No its not a "dangerous" element and trace amounts of it are found in the atmosphere. However that said if you were in a enclosed room and krypton pumped in you would suffoc…ate but this has to do with the fact that the body can't survive breathing it so you'd suffocate from lack of O2 rather than to much Krypton.
In Periodic Table
The process where an element turns to another is radioactive decay, and exposure to radioactivity is dangerous.
In Animal Rights and Abuse
Mercury is toxic, it can be absorbed through the skin and the vapor can be inhaled. Once in the body it does not leave. It can cause damage to the nerves, liver, and proteins …and can be especially damaging to children. Exposure to large quantities, especially over a long time, can be lethal.
