    What would happen if I had one hydrogen, two helium, three lithium and so on and so forth?

    Ex-chemist will have the best answer but my answer would be "not much". Some metals and salts and carbon monoxide, etc. Mainly you would just have a box of a lot of elements.

    For a start, how about being a bit more specific? Is that one hydrogen atom or one hydrogen molecule? A hydrogen atom wandering around on its own is going to be more reactive than a hydrogen molecule.

    I would guess atom, but whatever floats your boat.

    I know that’s the wrong answer. And exchemist would agree.

    but I don’t care. I’m after ddyddyr’s opinion.

    You don't really "know" anything, do you? Just asking for a friend.

    Does anyone?

    I’m not here to debate what is known. I’m here for the glory of the unknown.

    Thanks I’ve already proven ddyddyr wrong on two occasions highly related to this topic.

    • Please don't post nonsense, especially in our Science subforums.
    Do you understand

    x+1 as it equates to elements?

    I don't understand anything you say actually as it's quite disjointed.

    Poe wrote upon both. Or is that a different riddle?

    Moderator note: Beaconator has been warned for posting nonsense to one of our Science subforums.

    Due to accumulated warning points, he will be taking a few days off from the forum.

    Beaconator already has a thread running on the topic of putting all the elements in a box. It's a nonsensical thread and there's no reason to duplicate it. So, this one is closed.
