Hello and welcome to the Biology facts section of our website. We have a number of different article that will help you understand this topic a little better and don’t worry we have fun information also!

Here you'll Increase your biology knowledge with lots of interesting facts. Did you know Calcium is found in the Earth's crust and is actually the fifth most abundant of all the compounds that makes up our planet. NASA uses hydrogen as rocket fuel and it can also be used in fertilizer. Also, Nitrogen is a main component in fertilizer. Silicon Valley is a real place? They got this name because of all the Silicon used for electronic devices. So let's get going and hopefully have fun learning.

  • Calcium

    It is well known that people and animals need calcium to build strong bones and teeth. But did you know that calcium was first used to cement stones together?

  • Carbon

    Carbon gets its name from the Latin language, carbo, which in English means, "coal." This element is very intriguing and you may be surprised at some of the things it can do.

  • Chlorine

    If you have ever been to a swimming pool, then you most likely have come in contact with Chlorine - it's that strong smelling chemical that kills bacteria and germs.

  • Coal

    Coal is so much more than just something Santa leaves for naughty kids. Coal has been around for hundreds of thousands of years. Today, we use about 5.3 billion tons of this black stuff each year.

  • Diamond

    The diamond is a precious stone that lots of people would love to own. In fact, the first diamond every given in an engagement ring was way back in 1477.

  • Helium

    You have probably already seen Helium at work at a Birthday party or other special occasions. That's right. Helium is what makes those colorful balloons float.

  • Hydrogen

    Hydrogen is the most common element found on Earth. It is extremely important to humans as water is made up of two parts hydrogen (and one part oxygen).

  • Neon

    You have probably already seen this "noble" gas at work in those brightly-colored neon signs. But did you know, Neon is considered an inert gas, which means it doesn't like to react to other molecules?

  • Nitrogen

    Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas, but is certainly isn't boring. Did you know, Nitrogen makes up 78 percent of the air we breathe?

  • Oil

    Our lives would be very different without Oil. It comes in many forms that are a huge benefit to all of us. But did you know, Oil doesn't like to mix with water?

  • Oxygen

    Take a big deep breath...ahhh...Oxygen. This colorless, odorless and tasteless element is vital to all living things; even undersea creatures need oxygen.

  • Radon

    Radon is a dangerous gas. It is colorless and odorless and is always being emitted from our planet - don't worry, it's not enough to harm you.

  • Silicon

    Silicon is an interesting element. It can look like a metal, or not. It doesn't conduct electricity very well, yet it is an important component in high-tech devices.

  • Sulfur

    Sulphur (also spelled sulphur) is a bright yellow chunky substance that may be the cause of all that stench. It can be both toxic and non-toxic, depending on its state.
