Period and Atomic Number
Period 2 which is in the second row of the periodic table, and the atomic number of 8.
Uses for Oxygen
If we didn't have oxygen every person on Earth would be dead. Oxygen is used for scuba diving, you put it in a tank and dive under the water and breathe the oxygen. Oxygen is also for people who have a hard time breathing, especially if you are older. If you are a climber then you use oxygen when you climb higher, this is because of the decrease of oxygen.
Atomic mass, protons, electrons, and neutrons
The atomic mass of oxygen is 15.999 and has 8 protons 8 neutrons and also has 8 electrons.
Valence electrons in an oxygen atom
An oxygen atom has 6 valance electrons
State of element
Oxygen is a gas and flows almost everywhere
The abundance is so much that every person can breathe fresh air in and out, oxygen is everywhere on Earth, but on top of mountains the air gets thinner and you might not be able to breathe it in.
Form of Oxygen
Oxygen is a compound
3 real world uses
1. Breathing and staying alive
2. Adventure such as scuba diving and mountain climbing
3. Lung cancer
It is in soil
water has oxygen I guess that's why they call it H2O
It is very complicated
