Lightbulb Periodic Table of the Elements.

HI

Just bringing to the surface something you may have or may not have noticed.

Au = Gold

Ba = Barium

What next?

Zn or perhaps Mg?

Perhaps it's just coincidence. :s3

Edit: Barium is also derived from the greek word 'barys', meaning heavy. I"ve heard about the Barra being a bit heavy lately, perhaps it was named accordingly.

I love the BA guys, so no flaming please. Just had to chuck this bit of knowledge of mine in here.

How much does that weigh? Might give us a clue to what the Falcon is going to weigh

Well, the more of it you have the more it weighs. It's like you can't have half a hole.

I choose to remain silent. Everything I say will be misquoted and used against me.

The atomic weight of Baruim is 137.33 (average of all known isotopes) which is actually lighter than Gold (196.97) so I guess there's no real relationship between the elements and the cars.
One mole of barium would weigh 137 grams which means that a BA XT would weigh the equivalent of 12364.96 mols or 7.4437x10^27 atoms of Baruim. :s5
