Palmitic acid makes up 31% of butterfat or milkfat
The chemical formula for Palmitic acid is CH 3 (CH 2 ) 14 COOH
There are three chemicals in this compound:
Oxygen History: Oxygen was said to come from the birth of Earth (Big Bang) Priestly was credited for it's discovery, however Scheele also discovered it independently. Properties: The gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. The liquid and solid forms are a pale blue color and are strongly paramagnetic Plants and animals rely on oxygen for respiration. Hospitals frequently prescribe oxygen for patients with respiratory ailments Atomic Number 8 Boiling Point -182.95 Atomic Radius 66 Electron Configuration [He]2s^2 2p^4 Atomic Symbol O Oxidation State -2 Melting Point -218.79 Atomic Weight 15.9994
History: Carbon is an element of prehistoric discovery. It is found in abundance in the sun, stars, comets, and atmospheres of most planets.
Properties:Carbon is found free in nature in three forms: graphite, diamond, and fullerines. A fourth form, known as "white" carbon, is now thought to exist. Ceraphite is one of the softest known materials while diamond is one of the hardest.
Without carbon, the basis for life would be impossible. While it has been thought that silicon might take the place of carbon in forming a host of similar compounds, it is now not possible to form stable compounds with very long chains of silicon atoms. The atmosphere of Mars contains 96.2% CO 2 . Some of the most important compounds of carbon are carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon disulfide (CS 2 ), chloroform (CHCl 3 ), carbon tetrachloride (CCl 4 ), methane (CH 4 ), ethylene (C 2 H 4 ), acetylene (C 2 H 2 ), benzene (C 6 H 6 ), acetic acid (CH 3 COOH), and their derivatives.
There are close to ten million known carbon compounds, many thousands of which are vital to organic and life processes.

History: Hydrogen was prepared many years before it was recognized as a distinct substance in 1776. The heavier elements were originally made from hydrogen atoms or from other elements that were originally made from hydrogen atoms, so basically, everything evolved from Hydrogen.
Properties:uite apart from isotopes, it has been shown that under ordinary conditions hydrogen gas is a mixture of two kinds of molecules, known as ortho- and para-hydrogen, which differ from one another by the spins of their electrons and nuclei.
Uses: Liquid hydrogen is important in cryogenics and in the study of superconductivity, as its melting point is only 20 degrees above absolute zero.
Tritium is readily produced in nuclear reactors and is used in the production of the hydrogen bomb.
Hydrogen is the primary component of Jupiter and the other gas giant planets. At some depth in the planet's interior the pressure is so great that solid molecular hydrogen is converted to solid metallic hydrogen .
