Element Symbols -
Unique 1,2, and 3 letter symbols
Every element in the Periodic Table has been given a unique 1, 2 or 3 letter
symbol collectively called the Element Symbols. The first letter of an Element
symbol is always a capital letter.
Many of the element symbols are quickly remembered and
recognised. These are the Element symbols that reflect the English name of the
element such as
O for Oxygen, H for hydrogen, C for carbon, N for nitrogen. Any subsequent
letters, which make up the Element symbols, are expressed in lower case, for
example the chemical symbol for Argon is ĎArí and the symbol for Neon is 'Ne'
which are even easier to remember.
All of the names of the elements, together
with their Element Symbols are detailed in alphabetical order in the table on
the bottom of this page
