Common Uses!

Phosphorus is usally used as lights or fertilizers and sometimes it is used to make matches.


for biological need I have 2 stars because it is not that helpful but some forms of phosphorus come from the body

for social need I have 5 stars because it is very easy to trade and would be a equal trade

for functional need I have 4 stars because it is not as needed as oxygen but it will light up your night and it will keep you warm during cold times

Defensive need has two stars because the only way to use phosphorus in defense is to set them on fire and even though it will leave a burn, it wont hurt as badly as a knife and it can  not be used to hunt animals
