i can tell you that it's one of the drugs used for lethal injection. obviously i don't know from experience so ya. it can combine with chlorine to form a kind of salt...potassium chloride. symbol on the periodic chart is K. that's all i got right now.

Do your own f*cking homework



C'mon, you're on the internet! A wealth of information at your fingertips and you ask the PIT! Put in the miniscule amount of effort it takes to actually do your homework, its not as if its particularly difficult, either!

It's a metal so combined with most non-metals forms a salt.

Brief summary.

Potassium is an S-block metal. It is also one of the most electropositive metals there is, meaning it will easily transfer an electron to another element. This results in high stability of it salts. All S-block metals react violently with water, and even with the moisture in the air, therefore they have to be stored under oil or in argon, which is the reason metallic potassium cannot be found on the earth surface in nature. (potassium reacts more vigorous than sodium or lithium). Chemically speaking it resembles sodium quite a bit, yet our body distinguishes between them and uses them most noteworthy in nerve transmission. Too much or too little potassium is dangerous (lethal) as the nerve function is disrupted. As stated, it is/ was used for lethal injections.

To be honest, I think The Pit is the worst place to ask for help on potassium. If you need help on cats/boobs/4chan/internet memes/masturbation tips and techniques, then you've come to the right place.
