The #1 Element!

Information About Hydrogen

History: It had been produced for a total of 95 years before it became an element! Robert Boyle produced hydrogen gas in 1671, and it was finally recognized as an element by Henry Cavendish in 1766.

3 Properties: Nonmetal, tasteless, and colorless.

Uses: To create water so we can survive, can be used as fuel, and helps produce Ammonia.

Compounds Containing Hydrogen: Hydrogen Fluouride (HF), Hydrogen Iodide (HI), and Water (H2O).
