Information about hydrogen

hydrogen is the first element of the periotic table. this element was discovered in 1766. hydrogen is produced by fossil fuels by steam feforming or partial oxdiation of methane and coal. gasification with only a small quantity by other routs such as biomass gasification or electrolysis of water. the atomic number is 1. the mass number is 1.0084+0.000014. the protons are 1H. the neutrons are 1. the electrons is 2.2

founders of hydrogen

henry cavendish and robert boyle discoverd hydrogen. in 1671 robert boyle discoverd and didcribed the reaction between iron fillings and dilute acids, which results in the production of hydrogen gas.

uses of hydrogen..

you could find hydrogen in giant gas plants and stars. Hydrogen is used to power a new range of new alternate fuel vehicles. the isotopes of hydrogen are deuteium, protium and tritium. the name hydrogen comes from the greek words ''hydro'' and ''genes''. because when it burns it ''creates water''
