      Hydrogen, helium, lithium, berillium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, fleuron, neon, sodium, magnesium, lithium, potasium, rubidium, iron, silver, gold, yturbium, selenium, unununium, radium, kryptonium, uranium, plutonium, silicon, chlorine, antinum, selurium, aluminium, nickel, copper, sulpher, germanium, einsteinium, lead, antinum.

      That’s the best I can do right now without looking. I really need to learn the elements song and I’d be better at this. (Oddly enough, Daniel Radcliff, aka Harry Potter, knows the elements song, so he’d know.)

      (PS apologies for the spelling, and I hope I didn’t accidentally invent some elements there!)

      ALL of them? Oh no, that would take me too much time to learn and I’ve got better things to do 🙂 Would you include the Lanthanides or Actinides in the list?

      No! That’s why there’s a periodic table, so we can look them up

      I’m afraid I couldn’t sorry I hade the first 50 memorised in university but I’m completely out of practice. I recommend the elements song though it’s pretty cool but only covers about 120 elements maybe? I’m not sure.
