  • It was Sir Humphry Davy again.Let's go check it out!
  • Element: Potassium-KMetalAlkaliPeriod4Group1Atomic Number19Atomic Weight39Configuration2, 8, 8, 1
  • I heard that a new chemical atom was discovered and can be found in bananas and other fruit
  • Really? Who found it?
  • This is great!
  • Hello, I have named the atom Potassium. This is the information I have on it
  • The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus
  • Hmm, This looks interesting!
  • Wait! No! You can't touch that!
  • This is cool, What's happening?!
  • Potassium has 8 valence electrons (electrons on the outermost of the shell)
  • The atom has 19 protons, 20 neutrons and 19 electrons
  • The nucleus is the middle (grey) part of this atom; it contains the protons and neutrons
  • I'm changing back!!
  • We better get going
  • You're back! Did you know that I isolated potassium through the electrolysis of molten caustic potash? That's how I named it
  • Well that was... interesting
  • Goodbye Sir Humphry Davy
