Chemistry

Every moment of every day, chemistry plays a part in all we experience. This branch of the Helium network humbly attempts to illuminate the vast array of chemical knowledge, making it accessible to all. Let our site inform, inspire, and awe you with chemical wonders.
What are isotopes?
By: David Thill
An element is a substance with a certain specific number of protons at its core, the nucleus. By definition, hydrogen is different than helium because hydrogen always has a single proton in its nucleus, while helium always has two. Silicon has 14, gold has 79...
