Did you know about 10 percent of the weight of living organisms is hydrogen, mainly in water, proteins and fats. Today I will be talking about the elements hydrogen. Hydrogen is the first element on the periodic table. Hydrogen atomic number is a 1 which you already know. The element symbols of Hydrogen is a H and its atomic is 1.008. The reason why it’s called hydrogen is because hydro mean water and gene mean a unit of hereditary that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some characteristics of the offspring. It was discovered by Henry Cavendish in 1766 was the first to recognize hydrogen gas as a discrete substance and by naming the gas from a metal acid reaction called the inflammable air. He discovered it by an experiment using zinc and hydrochloric acid. He discovered hydrogen and also found that is produced water when it burned. I know you probably asking who is Henry Cavendish and he is a FRS was a British natural philosophy, scientist, and an important experimental and theoretical chemistry and physicists. Hydrogen can be used in many ways such as rocket fuel and Hydrogen is also added to fats and oils, such as peanut oil, through a process called hydrogenation. Liquid hydrogen is used in the study of superconductors and when combined with liquid oxygen, makes an excellent rocket fuel. Hydrogen combines with other elements to form numerous compounds. It is the lightest element and can be used as a lifting agent in balloons. Since Hydrogen gas is highly flammable, it can be dangerous to use. Hydrogen in a year is about 9 million metric tons of hydrogen are produced in the United States annually, enough to power 20 to 30 million cars or 5 to 8 million homes. most of his hydrogen is produced in three states California, Louisiana, and Texas. Hydrogen is measured in Biomass Hydrogen is approximately 17 dollars per gram. In 1 kilogram is 1 gallon of gasoline equivalent to gge. $0.0015/gallon + $0.987/kg, Refining Costs = $0.9885 = $1.00/kg using Atmospheric Electrolysis. GGE is gasoline gallon equivalent. Hydrogen was discovered in British.
