North American City by Wikipedia Fact
Non-remnant stars are mainly composed of [element] in its plasma state.
Its boiling and melting points are the lowest among the elements and it exists only as a gas except in extreme conditions.
The physical properties of [element] vary widely with the allotropic form. For example, diamond is highly transparent, while graphite is opaque and black.
[Element] is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and mostly inert diatomic gas at standard conditions, constituting 78.09% by volume of Earth's atmosphere.
[Element] constitutes most of the mass of living organisms, because water is their major constituent (for example, about two-thirds of human body mass).
[Element] gives a distinct reddish-orange glow when used in either low-voltage [element] glow lamps or in high-voltage discharge tubes or [element] advertising signs.
Many [element] compounds are useful, such as lye for soap-making, and edible salt for use as a deicing agent and a nutrient.
The chief ore of [element] is bauxite.
Over 90% of the Earth's crust is composed of [minerals containing this element], making [it] the second most abundant element in the Earth's crust (about 28% by mass).
[Element] is referred to in the Bible as brimstone (burn stone) in English, with this name still used in several nonscientific tomes.
[Element] at high concentrations is extremely dangerous and poisonous for all living organisms, and was historically used in WWI as the first gaseous chemical warfare agent.
[Element] ion diffusion is a key mechanism in nerve transmission, and [element] depletion in animals, including humans, results in various cardiac dysfunctions.
As a major material used in mineralization of bone, teeth and shells, [element] is the most abundant metal by mass in many animals.
Steels and low carbon [element] alloys with other metals (alloy steels) are by far the most common metals in industrial use.
Architectural structures built with [element] corrode to give green verdigris or patina.
Brass, which is an alloy of copper and [element], has been used since at least the 10th century BC.
[Element] nitride and indium [element] nitride, minority semiconductor uses, produce blue and violet light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode lasers.
[Element] and its compounds, especially the trioxide, are used in the production of pesticides, treated wood products, herbicides, and insecticides.
Elemental [element] is a fuming red-brown liquid at room temperature, corrosive and toxic.
[Element]-containing enzymes are the most common catalysts used by some bacteria to break the bond in atmospheric molecular nitrogen, allowing biological nitrogen fixation.
[Element's atomic number] is the lowest atomic number without any stable isotopes; every form of it is radioactive.
The metal occurs naturally in its pure, free form, as an alloy with other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite.
With the exception of its use in nickel–[element] batteries and [element] telluride solar panels, the use of [element] is generally decreasing.
Pewter, which is an alloy of 85–90% [element and other metals] was used for flatware from the Bronze Age until the 20th century.
About 60% of [element] is consumed in flame retardants, and 20% is used in alloys for batteries, plain bearings and solders.
Although generally unreactive, [element] can undergo chemical reactions such as the formation of [element] hexafluoroplatinate, the first noble gas compound to be synthesized.
The element was named for the color of its primary oxide, [green].
[Element] is used for its high magnetic susceptibility in data storage applications, and as a component of Terfenol-D.
It is also known as wolfram.
It is a hard, brittle, bluish-white transition metal and is the densest naturally occurring element, with a density of 22.59 grams per cubic centimeter.
It is a dense, malleable, ductile, precious, gray-white transition metal. It is the least reactive metal.
Besides its widespread monetary and symbolic functions, [element] has many practical uses in dentistry, electronics, and other fields.
It is commonly known as quicksilver and was formerly named hydrargyrum.
[Element] is used in building construction, bullets and shot, weights, as part of solders, pewters, fusible alloys, and as a radiation shield.
It is the only gas under normal conditions that only has radioactive isotopes, and is considered a health hazard due to its radioactivity.
[Element] is a highly radioactive metal that decays into astatine, radium, and radon. As an alkali metal, it has one valence electron.
[Element]-235 has the distinction of being the only naturally occurring fissile isotope [meaning it is capable of sustaining a chain reaction of nuclear fission].
It is a synthetic element and radioactive. The most stable known isotope has a half-life of approximately 1.3 hours.
It has the highest atomic number and highest atomic mass of all the elements discovered so far.
A major development was the discovery that steel could be made highly resistant to corrosion and discoloration by adding metallic [element] to form stainless steel.
The two most useful properties of the metal are corrosion resistance and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal.
