Oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen are the main elements found inside the human body. I find it amazing that 63% of the human body is composed of just one element: oxygen. Perhaps this should not be surprising, since a lot of this oxygen is tied...
The chemistry of water
By: Rex Trulove
Water is so incredibly important that without it, life as we know it could not exist. Yet it is often taken for granted. Chemically, water is formed when an atom of Oxygen combines with two atoms of Hydrogen. Oxygen is lacking two electrons to have...
