Do you know What is Uranium? & who invented uranium, if not, then we will discuss about it in this article.

What is Uranium?

Uranium is a very useful metal present on Earth. Uranium has an atomic number of 92 and is chemically denoted as U. Uranium is a very active element, capable of reacting very quickly with any substance. Along with this, uranium is such an element that if left in the open air, it starts burning on its own.
