The name of the element, including an explanation for the origin of its name if that origin is known
The element I have chosen is carbon it comes the from the Latin word "carbo" meaning charcoal.
The chemical symbol, average atomic mass, and atomic number for the element.
The chemical symbol is C. The average atomic mass is 122.0107 amu. The atomic number is 6.
The number of valence electrons in a neutral atom of the element.
Carbon has four valence electrons.
A description of the element's position on the periodic table, including a list of other elements that have similar properties (if any).
Carbon is located in group 14 in period 2. Some elements that have similar properties are Nitrogen, Oxygen, Lead, and Tin.
A description of where the element is commonly found in nature.
Carbon is found free in nature in three allotropic forms: amorphous, graphite, and diamond.
A description of how the element is commonly used by people and what properties make it appropriate for that use.
Carbon is commonly used by people in the form of graphite which is the black material in the pencil. Properties that make it appropriate for the use is graphite is one of the softest materials that is a form of carbon which is primarily used as a lubricant.
A list of five compounds the element can form.
Five compounds carbon can form are carbon dioxide which is natural occurring human-made, carbon monoxide which is also natural occurring and human-made, chloroform can be both natural occurring and man-made is mostly man-made, carbon disulfide can be both naturally occurring and man-made, and methane is both naturally occurring and man-made.
A brief description of how the element was discovered, identified, and/or purified.
Carbon has been known about since ancient times but didn't become an element until much later, so scientist do not know exactly when carbon was discovered.
An interesting fact about the element.
Carbon forms many compounds, more than the rest of the elements.
