This quiz on the elements of the Periodic Table will test you on symbols. Each element is given a symbol to represent the element. For example, the symbol for hydrogen is H. They symbol for nitrogen is N. The symbol for lead is Pb. The symbol for gold is Au and the symbol for silver is Ag.

You will notice that the symbol for some elements is very different from the English name of the element. This is because the symbol uses either the Latin form of the word or because the element itself was once known by a different name and the original name is where the symbol was taken from. For example, lead is derived from Plumbum, hence Pb.
