What is Hydrogen Under normal room temperature, Hydrogen is a gas. Hydrogen’s Atomic Number is 1 and its Atomic Weight is 1.00794 which is rounded to 1.008.
How does Hydrogen look Hydrogen is a no color, no smell, or taste gas, also when Hydrogen is turned to a liquid it is still colorless. But smells can be added to Hydrogen. Hydrogen turns into a liquid when the temperature is 253, when the temperature is 259, it becomes solid.
History of hydrogen Hydrogen was discovered by the English scientist Henry Cavendish. Hydrogen was discovered in 1766 and was named by Antoine Lavoisier in 1783. In 1783 Jacques Charles made the first flight with his hydrogen balloon "La Charlière".
Uses of Hydrogen FuelFuel is used to power cars, Hydrogen is combined with carbon to make fuel. AircraftsFuel is used to power huge aircrafts, liquid Hydrogen is mixed with other substances to power aircrafts. BalloonHydrogen is used a lot to power up hot air balloons and parachutes, gas Hydrogen is blown into the cloth to rise it up. UsesWhat qualities of the element make it useful for this purpose?
Hydrogen in water Water has the scientific formula H2O which means 2 atoms of Hydrogen and 1 atom of Oxygen. Water is one the three things to live happily which are: Water, food, shelter.
Hydrogen in Petroleum Petr0leum does not have a specific formula yet, but Hydrogen is mixed with carbon to make Petroleum. Petroleum is very important in our days because people can’t transport without a car, and a car can’t be powered without Petroleum.
Hydrogen in Hot Air Balloons Hydrogen is always used to power up hot air balloons. Hydrogen is not mixed with any other elements to power up hot air balloons. Hot air balloons were used a lot in the old days before aircrafts, they were very important.
Hydrogen in our BODIES !!! Of course, there is a lot of Hydrogen in our bodies, that’s because our body contains water and water contains Hydrogen so Hydrogen is found in our bodies. Also Hydrogen is found in our body because Hydrogen Peroxide is found in blood cells in the blood that runs through the circulatory and digestive system.
