Hi I am Phil the phosphorus atom and my journey of life starts in the soil as a normal phosphorus atom in the ground.
I am taken from the ground up into a plant through their roots. A cow then comes along and eats the plant that I was part of.
The cow I am now in poops me out and I then become part of the soil in the ground again where I get decomposed into the ground.
After in the soil I am leached into the water from the soil I was living in.
I then become part of the sediment in the water with all of the other phosphorus atoms that were emerged into the rock sediment in water.
I am then lifted into the sky through geological uplift into the atmosphere and clouds. I am then rained down through photosynthesis and put right back into the soil where I started.
