How are elements named? The names of elements often have interesting origins. They have been named after people, places, colors, mythological creatures, or for a variety of other reasons. Some are 19 named after scientists, such as Curium (after Marie and Pierre Curie), Lawrencium (Ernest Lawrence), Seaborgium (Glenn Seaborg), Mendelevium (Dmitri Mendeleev), Einsteinium (Albert Einstein), and Bohrium (Niels Bohr). Others are named after places, such as Lutetium (Lutetia means Paris in Greek), Californium, Berkelium (Berkeley, California), Americium, Dubnium (Dubna, Russia), Hassium (Hessen, Germany), Yttrium, Ytterbium, Terbium, and Erbium (these last four being named after Ytterby, Sweden).

Plasmas are found in fluorescent lights and neon lights. If you’ve ever seen a Tesla coil at a science museum, the arcs of light that they produce are plasma, as is lightning. Plasma TVs and plasma lamps are correctly named—both generate light using plasma, similar to fluorescent lights. What is a phase diagram? A phase diagram shows the phases of a particular substance as a function of temperature and pressure. An example for a single component phase diagram (as in not a mix- 33 A phase diagram shows the phases of a particular substance as a function of temperature and pressure.

We are what we eat. What’s special or different about organic foods? While the precise definition is still changing, everyone agrees that organic foods are those grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. The “organic” label also frequently excludes the use of irradiation and genetically modified fruits and vegetables. Whether the food tastes better, or is healthier to eat, is for you (or at least someone other than us) to say. What gives a food its taste? Molecules, of course!
