ELEMENT WANTED; OXYGEN
dead or alive
Oxygen is a colorless, odorless reactive gas, the chemical element of atomic number 8 and the life-supporting component of the air. Oxygen forms about 20 percent of the earth's atmosphere, and is the most abundant element in the earth's crust, mainly in the form of oxides, silicates, and carbonates.
Alias of Oxygen; The oxygen family, also called the chalcogens, consists of the elements found in group 16 of the periodic table and is considered among the main group elements. It consists of the elements oxygen, sulfur, selenium, tellurium and polonium.
Oxygen, a gas found in the air we breathe, is very much needed for human life. And oxygen is needed for all living organisms. There are some people with breathing disorders that can’t get enough oxygen naturally. So in return they may need supplemental oxygen, or oxygen therapy. Oxygen is used everyday. We breathe oxygen in and out of our bodies nonstop, awake or asleep, you need oxygen to survive. Without it, our health begins to suffer and or we die. Unhealthy or weak cells due to improper metabolism lose their natural immunity and are very prone to viruses and all kinds of serious health problems.
Oxygen Bonds with:
- Most nonmetals form the oxide with the highest possible oxidation state, with the halides excepted. Most metals form oxides with the oxygen in a -2 oxidation state.
- Metal oxides are basic and nonmetal oxides are acidic. Metal oxides, peroxides, and superoxides dissolve in water and react with water to form basic solutions. Oxygen also forms covalent oxides with non-metals which react with water to form acidic solutions.
- But oxygen doesn't react with fluorine or noble gases.
Oxygen is found...
in 46% of the crust, 21% of the atmosphere, and 61% of the human body. Oxygen is also found in nature. Every living organism needs it and uses it. You are basically born with oxygen. It is in nature.
