Fun Friday: Periodic Table

Welcome to a new column on my site where I can write about stuff that is not exactly related to tech, but is somewhat close to it.

This week on feature Friday, I'm going to talk to all of you about the Periodic Table of the Elements. While I'm not going to give you a complete lesson on Atoms and the Periodic table, but talk to you about it a little bit. Some info you might even be interesting.

All Atoms have 3 parts: Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons. Protons is what defines an atom. Metals such as Iron, Nickel, Cobalt, Gold, Silver, and so on are on this chart. All have a specific amount of protons, which defines an atom.

Here is the interesting part. Do you know what is the element that is the building block of all organic matter?

I'm not going to tell you, so I'll let you guess the comment section. I will give you a hint, it is on the 2nd period, meaning the second row on the Periodic Table.

Don't be shy - I'm not going to be mad if you get it wrong.
