01 Oct Chemistry Tuition lessons on Crucial Element Facts in Chemistry
Have you studied about the element in your Chemistry tuition? It is the easy form of matter that can never be broken down using any chemical means. An example of the element is any substance which is made up of one type of atom.
Oxygen, hydrogen, uranium and iron are some examples of elements. So here are some crucial facts that you must know about elements:

It is important for you to know that every atom of an element consists of the same number of protons. There are numerous elements that take place in a natural way. However, some of them are man-made or synthetic.
There is lot more to learn on this topic which will be soon covered in the upcoming chemistry tuition lessons, so stay connected!
