There’s Something About Hydrogen

This is what a hydrogen atom looks like. Hydrogen is the simplest kind of atom in the universe. This atom has a nucleus that is made up of one proton. Circling around the nucleus is one electron.

In the beginning of the universe, hydrogen was probably the only atom there was. These atoms gradually grouped together into clumps called nebulae (the definition of a nebulae is nothing more than two or more atoms that have gotten together). Once enough hydrogen atoms got together, and started to swirl around each other and generated enough heat, and started banging into each other, that’s what causes a star to be born.

Now hold your breath, because I’m going to tell you how many hydrogen atoms are in the average adults body. The number is, let’s hear the drum roll, 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
That’s 7 Septillion atoms. Now get this. There’s that much and more of oxygen and carbon atoms in your body.

To impart just a little more information on how the body is made up, read the following.

The average adult body contains about 53% water by weight. Hydrogen makes up about 11% of that weight. Now get this. Hydrogen is 67% of the body by atomic percent. Of all the elements in our bodies, oxygen is by far most of the mass of the body than any other element.

Just thought you would like to know these facts. I find them very interesting.

Just so hydrogen and oxygen I mentioned above don’t feel lonely, below is a list of the other elements that are in our bodies in no particular order.

Radium, Tungsten, Beryllium, Samarium, Thorium, Uranium, Vanadium, Gold, Scandium, Tantalum, Indium, Bismuth, Thallium, Yttrium, Tellurium, Gallium,

Lanthanum, Zirconium, Niobium, Antimony, Silver, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Germanium, Mercury, Caesium, Arsenic, Lithium, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium, Nickel, Boron, Tin, Iodine, Titanium, Barium, Cerium, Cadmium, Aluminum, Copper, Lead, Bromine, Strontium, Rubidium, Silicon, Zinc, Fluorine, Iron, Magnesium, Chlorine, Sodium, Potassium, Sulfur, Phosphorus, Calcium, Nitrogen, and Carbon.

Yes, we have all those elements in our bodies.
