Nitrogen is an element found in the nucleus of every living cell because it is one of the chemical components of DNA.1 Nitrogen has an atomic number of seven. On the periodic table, the symbol of Nitrogen is N.

Nitrogen is non-toxic, odorless, colorless, and non-flammable.2 Nitrogen makes up 79% of the earth's atmosphere.3. Nitrogen has sixteen isotopes, including two stable ones. It is also essential to life: a key building block of DNA, which determines our genetics, is essential to plant growth, and therefore necessary for the food we grow.4.

Nitrogen is extremely important for plant growth, without it, they will grow smaller fruit, will become more yellow, and will be stunted in growth. Nitrogen is a part of all proteins, making it crucial for life on earth. Nitrogen is crucial to life because it is the most abundant element in our atmosphere. Nitrogen is found in soils, plants, the air we breathe, and the water we drink.5

2.5 perfect weights of living organisms come from nitrogen in organic molecules.6

Nitrogen (N), is a naturally occurring element that is necessary for reproduction and growth in animals and plants.7 It is the most common uncombined element on Earth. It is the 5th-7th most abundant element in the Solar System and Milky Way.8 Nitrogen is a part of all proteins. Nitrogen compounds are found in organic materials, foods, fertilizers, poisons, and explosives. Different types of nitrogen are used for different things. Liquid nitrogen is used as a refrigerant to store cells, and liquid nitrogen is used to quickly freeze food.9

Nitrogen’s boiling point is minus 320.43 degrees Fahrenheit. Nitrogen's melting point is minus 321 degrees Fahrenheit.10 In the liquid state, nitrogen has valuable cryogenic applications; except for the gases hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide, fluorine, and oxygen, practically all chemical substances have negligible vapor pressures at the boiling point of nitrogen and exist as crystalline solids at that temperature. In the chemical industry, nitrogen is used to prevent oxidation or other deterioration of a product, as an inert diluent of a reactive gas, as a carrier to remove heat or chemicals, and as an inhibitor of fire or explosions.


Facts about nitrogen:
Nitrogen named after the Greek words nitron, for "native soda," and genes for "forming," nitrogen is the fifth most abundant element in the universe.11 Concerning Greek-rooted words, Saturn’s moon of Titan, in stark contrast to our abode, is crafted of 98% nitrogen. Also, Nitrogen is responsible for sky Aurora’s astonishing display of art in our planet’s thermosphere.12

As already mentioned above, manufactured ammonia can be attributed to nitrogen gases, which is an important component used to produce chemical fertilizers for helping the environment. Though this can contribute to aiding the production of healthy crops, too much nitrogen in excess will harm the environment, and like most things, balance is crucial in its effectiveness.13

Nitrogen comes in four factors of use. Nitrogen is used for pharmaceutical purposes, electronic manufacturing, and stainless steel manufacturing. Nitrogen gas is used in the pharmaceutical industry to create antibiotics and anesthetics. Nitrogen is used in electronics to prevent oxidation and create an electronic failure. Nitrogen is used in stainless steel manufacturing to get rid of any contamination that could occur. Nitrogen gas is known to be the most effective during this process of removing contaminations.14 ;15
