  3. 3. Classification <ul><li>Nitrogen belongs to the non metal group of elements in the periodic table </li></ul>
  4. 4. History <ul><li>David Rutherford discovered Nitrogen in 1772 in Scotland </li></ul><ul><li>Its name comes from the Greek words &quot;nitron genes“ which means “nitre” and “forming” </li></ul>
  5. 5. Characteristics <ul><li>Nitrogen is colorless </li></ul><ul><li>It has no hardness because it’s a gas </li></ul><ul><li>Gases don’t have elasticity </li></ul>
  6. 6. Isotopes and Hazards <ul><li>Nitrogen has two naturally occurring isotopes: N-14 and N-15 </li></ul><ul><li>Hazards are nitrogen isn’t very good for breathing it’s called “the killing air” </li></ul><ul><li>Liquid nitrogen will kill you or rather freeze you </li></ul>
