    To be honest, I have no idea what they're pointing at. What I do wonder if why is "K" called Potassium, instead of Kalium, which it really is, in chemistry?

    Yak, K is the chemical symbol for Potassium in the UK.

    Its chemical symbol comes from the Latin kalium.

    The element was discovered and named in 1807 by English chemist Humphry Davy from the English word "potash" (pot ashes).

    The French also call it Potassium whereas the Germans called it Kalium.

    Presumably from your question, you know it as Kalium in Finland too! One of those cases where the same thing has different names in different parts of Europe. Pity the chemists of the world couldn't have standardised on one name or the other!!!

    CJ, yeah I did notice, but I didn't reply again. I was more interested in the Kalium than the actual text /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
