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
