Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about platinum, an element often associated with jewelry and motor cars.

The alchemical symbol for platinum was formed by joining the symbols of silver and gold and its name is derived from the Spanish word "platina," meaning "little silver."
