basic ingredient of glass
used in baking  absorbs other elements that we need to survive
 helps in fixation of nitrogen in Haber ammonia process
 aids in hydrogenation of fats and oils in liquid form
 used in cryogenics and in the study of superconductivity  used in breathing apparatus
 oxidizing agent
 used in liquid detergents and soap
 involved for the proper transmission of nerve impulse
 involved in metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins  used in photocells
 used in devices which convert light signals to electric signals Alkaline Earth Metals used to power cardiac pacemakers in the form lithium-iodine battery
used in the medication for bipolar  serves a catalyst in synthesis of proteins and in proper relaxation of muscles
 activates enzymes that speed up chemical reactions
 used to make aircraft, automobile wheels, tools and garden furniture
