History

History
The element Phosphorus was discovered by Hennig Brand in year 1669 in Germany. Phosphorus derived its name from from the Greek word phoosphoros, 'carrying light'
The element Argon was discovered by Lord Rayleigh in year 1894 in United Kingdom. Argon derived its name derived its name from from the Greek word argos, meaning 'idle'
