Default Fun Facts about Potassium!

I was researching facts about Potassium for a science poster. I thought they were awesome so I'll share with you.

Potassium in #19 on the Periodic Table. It has 19 Protons and Electrons. 20 Neutrons.

A soft, silver-white, highly or explosively reactive metallic element that occurs in nature only in compounds.

Used: responsible for the function of cells.

Potassium is found in Bananas Milk Avocados Oranges Fish Dry Beans Peanut Butter Cantaloupe Mushrooms Spinach Potatoes Watermelon.

Needed in everyone’s diet. Can cause many problems if not.
Ex: Vomiting, bleeding, frequent bathroom breaks.

You may think this is boring and that's ok. I don't mind. Not everyone likes Chemistry.

Potassium can also make cramps go away, like in bananas. If you have something like a leg cramp, that is.

It's in this banana. Thank you'" Hehe

I think that chemistry is fascinating! Here's some more about potassium: it's the third requirement for plant growth after nitrogen and phosphate. If you have a wood fireplace in your home, you can use the ashes to fertilise your garden: just spread them over the soil and work it in with a garden fork. The potassium in the ashes will strenghten your plants. Potassium, when bound to another chemical, is called potash.
