The name hydrogen comes from the Greek hydro (water) and genes (creator), making hydrogen literally mean water-maker. This name is appropriate since the combustion of hydrogen with oxygen creates the life sustaining substance we all love: H2O.

Water maker is the meaning of Hydrogen.It is a greek word.

one. The formula for hydrogen chloride is HCl; meaning one Hydrogen atom and one chlorine atom.

Hydrogen is diatomic, meaning hydrogen will naturally form pairs. Therefore, a hydrogen molecule looks like H-H.

Methane is a compound made of hydrogen and carbon, but hydrogen is an element, meaning it's pure.

the negative logarithm of hydrogen iron concentrated Or Potential Hydrogen (But you will get the lowest mark if you answer with this)

Deuterium is the name of an the hydrogen isotope with 1 proton (Meaning that it is hydrogen) and 2 neutrons. It is less formally known as "heavy hydrogen".

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate Hydrogen

Hydrogen and Oxygen The scientific formula is H20 Meaning 2 hydrogen, 1 oxygen

hydrogen is an element. Normally it is found as H2, meaning there are two atoms of hydrogen bonded together into one molecule. Hydroxide would be hydrogen bonded with oxygen, another element.

The pH is a measure of the hydrogen ions activity in solutions.

Hydrogen is diatomic, meaning it will naturally pair up in a single bond to form H2

The abbreviation pH means "potential of Hydrogen" where capital H is the symbol for the element hydrogen.

H2 is the symbol for the diatomic molecule of hydrogen; 2 H meaning is two hydrogen atoms.

Water (H2O)Water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. We know this because hydrogen (H) has a 2 after it, meaning there are two parts hydrogen in the substance. Then after the hydrogen symbols, we see oxygen (O) without any numbers after it - meaning there is only one part oxygen in the mix.H2O - 2 x Hydrogen and 1 x Oxygen

In 1783, Antoine Lavoisier gave the element the name hydrogen (from the Greek hydro meaning water and genes meaning creator) when he and Laplace reproduced Cavendish's finding that water is produced when hydrogen is burned.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. We humans are mostly full of water, water is made of 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen meaning that if we don't have Hydrogen we also have no water.

Most likely, hydrogen will form a cation, meaning it will have a positive charge of +1

Yes. Methane is CH4, meaning each molecule contains 1 carbon atom and 4 hydrogen atoms.

No, hydrogen peroxide is H2O2, meaning in each molecule there are two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. Water is H2O, meaning that each molecules has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Hydrogen peroxide has different chemical and physical properties from water. It is more acidic, more viscous, and has a higher boiling point. It decomposes easily into water and oxygen and is a strong oxidizer.

The meaning of 4 H2 is four molecules of hydrogen.

(H+) meaning hydrogen, (Na+) meaning sodium and potassium (K+) :)

Well, pH means "potential of hydrogen," so maybe the 8-letter word you're looking for is hydrogen.

It means that a deuterium atom is present instead of a hydrogen atom. Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen, meaning that it contains one more neutron in the atomic nucleus. Hence, it is heavier than hydrogen.

oxidising substances are substances which gives oxygen or gains hydrogen
