GOOD INFORMATION!!!!!! ......well.. hydrogen is a nonmetal! It is also a gas.. NOT SURPRISED!!!! It is also the most abundant element in the universe. It is fuel for the sun and the stars, it is believed that right now that there are 2,000 times more hydrogen atoms than oxygen atoms and 10,000 times more hydrogen atoms than carbon atoms. If you dont know anything about any element ask me!!!!
