Thursday Thirteen #9

13 things about Dane Bramage

The Elemental Edition

Remember way back to my Thursday Thirteen List of 13 Lists of 13 (my T13 #2)? Well on of the items was “13 Elements from the Periodic Table That I Like”. That was supposed to be kind of a joke. I wasn't going to do it but my current list idea, “13 Supermodels Who have agreed to Go Out with Me with Photographic Evidence” isn’t quite done. So as usual when I am behind the eight ball and hurting for time and ideas, I steal borrow ideas from Lynn at Bloggin’ Outloud. And I'm in luck! He's on a blogcation for two weeks and can’t object. He he he. So what I have done is created the Interactive Thursday Thirteen Science Quiz. I've listed Thirteen symbols from the periodic chart. You come up with the corresponding element. Try it from memory first then cheat if you have to. There is no grade.
  1. Hg
  2. He
  3. C
  4. K
  5. O
  6. Mn
  7. Co
  8. As
  9. Os
  10. Pu
  11. Au
  12. Pt
  13. Uub (hint atomic number 112)

The answers are below the fold. Go to the end of the post and click "We want to read more!"

  1. Hg - Mercury
  2. He - Helium
  3. C - Carbon
  4. K - Potassium
  5. O - Oxygen
  6. Mn - Manganese
  7. Co - Cobalt
  8. As - Arsenic
  9. Os - Osmium
  10. Pu - Plutonium
  11. Au - Gold
  12. Pt - Platinum
  13. Uub - Ununbium or "eka mercury," is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the temporary symbol Uub and has the atomic number 112. Element 112 is one of the superheavy elements. Following periodic trends, it is expected to be a liquid metal more volatile than mercury.
