GOLD A presentation by nick johnson

Gold is a very valuable resource. It is the number 79 on the periodic table and has the atomic mass of 196.966569. A atom of gold contains 79 electrons, 79 protons, and 118 neutrons.

Gold is part of the transition metal family. In history, it has been used as currency, and is still worth a lot today. It is also used a lot in electronic devices today.

Gold is a shiny yellow metal. The color had been made with other means for decoration, but still is under the name gold. It is oderless, but extremely heavy.

A fun fact about gold is that the majority of it is recycled. Most of the gold today was originally ancient coins.

That concludes my presentation.
