Another sproutcm good one! Not as elaborate as so many others, but simple ideas can work well too, and 0:04 remaining made me feel it had worked extremely well.

This quiz makes me realize how many elements have nine-letter names.

Thank goodness we don't have to spell the un- ones.

How is phosphorus last. -____________-

This quiz screams 'obscure long name me!' but phosphorus is neither very common nor obscure, its the holy grail of this quiz. I'm sorry ununquadium, etc. aren't accepted. No excuse for my poor performance, but how do you justify their non inclusion? Anyone who's aware of 'Copernicium,' like me, will get it, and it's just a matter of time till you have to accept 'Nipponium.' LOL 9 letters.

Welcome to Sporcle, where the only element on the list that the average person has ever heard of comes in...dead last. Naturally.

What about Unobtainium as a bonus answer?

Its interesting how nearly all of the elements are after 100 in the atomic number scale...

@WackyZacky: well, most of those new elements are named after people or places and it happened by chance that those people or places had relatively long names: Mendeleev, Rutherford, Copernicus, California, Darmstadt, etc. "Smithium" or "Utahium" wouldn't have made the list.

Sproutcium would have just made the list.

Can I name all the elements whose names are ten letters or more long? Yes. Can I spell them all correctly? Er, ...no. Great quiz!
Mar 22nd, 2012 at 07:21 GMT
Why aren't these on here? ununquadium ununpentium ununhexium ununseptium ununoctium

Got All, nearly missed molybdenum but I remembered this is all in alphabetical order

most other quizzes accept 'quicksilver' as an alternative answer for mercury, I think this should be a bonus answer.
