Chemical Element Quizzes & Trivia

A chemical element is a pure chemical substance consisting of a single type of atom distinguished by its atomic number. The properties of the chemical elements are often summarised using the periodic table, which powerfully and elegantly organises these elements.

Two most abundant elements in the Earth's crust are oxygen and silicon, which can be found, for example, in sand (SiO2).  The only element that was named after a living person was Seaborgium. Because he was still alive, the international committee debated for some time whether to name it after him. If you answer the questions of these quizzes, you will find out even more interesting things about these elements like: “What is one of the two most abundant elements in the universe?”, “What element’s three isotopes have different names?”, and “What group is Argon (Ar) found in?”.
