You'll get the "NaCl" (knack) of Chlorine by the end of this presentation. Mehraz Karim, Period c Bryan

The element I've studied is called Chlorine, but you may know it as Cl, which is its symbol. The element was discovered in 1774 by Karl Wilhelm Scheele, but it wasn't an official element until Sir Humphrey Davy officially said it was in 1810. The name chlorine comes from chloros, the greek word for greenish-yellow, which is the color of Chlorine.
