  1. Using the clue and image, identify the element and its symbol. Remember that chemistry is the study of matter. 46 of the elements are included in this exercise. PERIODIC TABLE OF THE ELEMENTS Element Quiz

  2. The lowest density gas. By far the most common element in the sun and universe. Hydrogen

  3. Helium An inert gas used in balloons (also what a doctor tries to do to patients).

  4. Compounds of this light member of the alkali metals are used to treat some types of mental disorders.  Lithium

  5. Compounds of this first member of the alkaline earth metals are extremely toxic. Beryllium

  6. Compounds of this group 3A (or 13) element are important in cleaners (also what one termite might say to another). Boron

  7. Organic chemistry is the chemistry of compounds of this element. It occurs as diamond and graphite. Carbon 

  8. Non-metal which is 78% of air (also what one trogen says to another on the way to bed). Nitrogen In liquid state

  9. This non-metal necessary for animal life is the second most abundant element in the atmosphere (21%) and the most abundant in the earth's crust. Oxygen  Liquid form -paramagnetism

  10. Compounds of this gaseous halogen are used as additives in toothpastes and in some water supplies. Fluorine 

  11. Inert gas used in colored display lights. Neon

  12. Alkali metal whose ion is blamed for high blood pressure. Reacts violently with water. Sodium + water

  13. This alkaline earth metal is used in fireworks and flash bulbs and is present in chlorophyll.  Magnesium

  14. This low density metal is used extensively in foil, kitchen utensils and wiring. Aluminum 

  15. The second most abundant element in the earth's crust is used in semiconductors (also a joker in jail). Silicon 

  16. This non-metal is part of the DNA polymer chain and is used in matches. Phosphorus  Allotropes of this element

  17. This nonmetal is used in the vulcanization of natural rubber and as a fungicide. Sulfur 

  18. This gaseous halogen is used in bleach, pools and for water purification. Chlorine 

  19. This inert gas is the third most abundant gas in the atmosphere. abcdefghijklmnopqstuvwxyz The r is missing or gone. Argon  Discharge tube

  20. Compounds of this alkali metal are sometimes used by people on low sodium diets. Reacts violently (see below )with water. Potassium + water

  21. Compounds of this alkaline earth metal make up limestone, chalk, teeth and bones. Calcium

  22. This transition metal is as strong as steel, 45% less dense and maintains properties with temperature changes and although in abundance on earth, is expensive to refine.  Titanium

  23. This transition metal is used as a coating on water taps and bumpers because of its luster but many of its compounds are carcinogenic.  Chromium

  24. This transition metal is used in many important alloys including steel.  Manganese

  25. This transition metal is the main element in steel (also a really pressing thing). Iron 

  26. This is the transition metal present in Vitamin B12 (also what happens to men as they grow old). Cobalt 

  27. Transition metal whose ion has a green color. Also $0.05. Nickel 

  28. This transition metal is used for electrical wiring. Copper 

  29. Transition metal used in many alloys such as brass and to galvanize steel (also where you pour stale milk). Zinc 

  30. A metalloid used extensively in semiconductor materials. Its name sounds a little like a flower. Germanium

  31. This toxic member of the nitrogen family is used in the manufacture of pesticides. Arsenic

  32. This halogen is the only liquid non-metal.  Bromine

  33. This is the lightest element that does not have any stable isotopes. One of its isotopes is used extensively for medical diagnoses. Technetium 

  34. This brilliant white metal is an excellent electrical conductor and used in jewelry and tooth fillings. Silver 

  35. This member of the carbon family has predominantly metallic properties and is used to coat steel in cans for preserving food. Tin 

  36. This toxic solid halogen is used as an antiseptic. Iodine  subliming

  37. A heavy alkaline earth element. Despite the toxicity of its salts, one of the salts (sulfate) is used in the "milk shakes" taken by a patient for a gastrointestinal series of X-rays (also what happens to patients when the doctor fails).  Barium

  38. This rare earth element is used to make the strongest permanent magnets. Neodymium

  39. This transition metal is used for incandescent light bulb filaments.  Tungsten

  40. This silvery white, fairly inert, rare transition metal is used in jewelry and for electrical contacts (also what you might like to do to a big meanie). Platinum 

  41. This transition metal has often been used as the base for monetary systems and is used in jewelry. Gold

  42. The only liquid metal. Used for thermostats and to make amalgams for items such as tooth fillings (also a Greek streeker who wore shoes with wings). Unfortunately very toxic. Mercury

  43. This metal is used in the manufacture of storage batteries and X-ray shields. Lead 

  44. The heaviest nonradioactive element.  Bismuth

  45. This alkaline earth metal is radioactive and has been used on watch and clock hands (also what police do to wild parties).  Radium

  46. This radioactive element is used in nuclear reactors and weapons but the most abundant isotope (99.3%) does not undergo fission. Uranium

  47. This transuranium element although detected recently on earth must be synthesized from U-238. It is used in nuclear weapons and reactors and is extremely toxic. Plutonium 

  49. While this quiz is over, it is hoped that you will try to learn more about the elements and the periodic table. Although some students perceive that the main goal of testing is for grading, the primary goal of testing is actually to provide a learning experience. Hopefully, you have learned from this experience. Remember that chemistry is everything that matters (including love)!
