History

History
The element Sodium was discovered by Humphry Davy in year 1807 in United Kingdom. Sodium derived its name from from the English word soda (natrium in Latin)
The element Cesium was discovered by Robert Bunsen in year 1860 in Germany. Cesium derived its name derived its name from from the Latin caesius, meaning 'sky blue'
