Our "O" Has ARRIVED!!

I can't live without our "O" ^.^

Our baby!

Name: Oxygen

Element Symbol: O

Atomic Number: 8

Who's Baby "O"?

Baby "O" is short for Oxygen. Adopted on May 4,2015 by Sheyla .J.Rivera (Mom), Roxana Munoz (Mom) & Martin Rodriguez (brother).


Baby "O" takes up 2/3 of a human's body. He is essential to human life and he is always found in the water we drink and the air we breathe.

Who was the "father"of Baby O?

Joseph Priestly is traditionally credited with discovering oxygen in 1774 but Carl Wilhelm Scheele possibly discovered oxygen the year before, but his work was not published until after Priestly's.

Age? Weight? Height? Baby?

Baby "O" is 8 month and "weighs" about 16 pounds pounds.

(Oxygen is the eighth element on the Periodic Table. It has a mass of about 16amu.)


A little more UNDERSTANDING


  • Oxygen is a Chemical element with symbol O and atomic number 8. It is a member of the calcgogen group group on the periodic table and is a highly reactive non-metallic element and oxidizing that readily forms compounds (notably oxides) with most elements. By mass, oxygen is the third most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen and helium. At STP, two atoms of the element bind to form dioxygen, a diatomic gasthat is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, with the formula O
    2.

Baby "O" makes a BFF ^o^

  • Oxygen binds with Hemoglobin. Hemogloben transports oxygen and that's like oxygen's bestfriend
  • "The primary function of hemoglobin (Hb) is to transport oxygen. Since oxygen is not very soluble in water (the major constituent of blood), an oxygen transport protein must be used to allow oxygen to be 'soluble'. Hemoglobin (Hb) is the oxygen transport protein used in the blood of vertebrates. Below is a wireframe diagram of a hemoglobin molecule. It is composed of 4 polypeptide chains (represented in this diagram by different colors. Each chain contains one heme group (colored orange), each of which contains one iron ion (not shown). The iron is the site of oxygen binding; each iron can bind one O2 molecule thus each hemoglobin molecule is capable of binding a total to four (4) O2 molecules."
