History

History
The element Osmium was discovered by Smithson Tennant in year 1803 in United Kingdom. Osmium derived its name from from the Greek osmè, meaning 'smell'
The element Potassium was discovered by Humphry Davy in year 1807 in United Kingdom. Potassium derived its name derived its name from from New Latin potassa, 'potash' (kalium in Latin)
