\Ox"y*gen\, n. [F. oxyg[`e]ne, from Gr. ???? sharp, acid + root of ???? to be born. So called because originally supposed to be an essential part of every acid.] 1. (Chem.) A colorless, tasteless, odorless, gaseous element occurring in the free state in the atmosphere, of which it forms about 23 per cent by weight and about 21 per cent by volume, being slightly heavier than nitrogen. Symbol O. Atomic weight 15.96. Note: It occurs combined in immense quantities, forming eight ninths by weight of water, and probably one half by weight of the entire solid crust of the globe, being an ingredient of silica, the silicates, sulphates, carbonates, nitrates, etc. Oxygen combines with all elements (except fluorine), forming oxides, bases, oxyacid anhydrides, etc., the process in general being called oxidation, of which combustion is only an intense modification. At ordinary temperatures with most substances it is moderately active, but at higher temperatures it is one of the most violent and powerful chemical agents known. It is indispensable in respiration, and in general is the most universally active and efficient element. It may be prepared in the pure state by heating potassium chlorate. This element (called dephlogisticated air by Priestley) was named oxygen by Lavoisier because he supposed it to be a constituent of all acids. This is not so in the case of a very few acids (as hydrochloric, hydrobromic, hydric sulphide, etc.), but these do contain elements analogous to oxygen in property and action. Moreover, the fact that most elements approach the nearer to acid qualities in proportion as they are combined with more oxygen, shows the great accuracy and breadth of Lavoisier's conception of its nature. 2. Chlorine used in bleaching. [Manufacturing name]

Let's analyse "oxygen" as pure text. This string has Six letters in Three syllables and Two vowels (In our algorithm Y is not counted as vowel, but in English language, sometimes it sounds like one). 33.3% of vowels is 5.3% less then average English word. Written in backwards: NEGYXO. Average typing speed for these characters is 1590 milliseconds. [info]

Morse code: --- -..- -.-- --. . -.


Hearts desire number calculated from vowels: oxygen: 6 + 5 = 11, reduced: 11 (or 9 if Y is vowel too). and the final result is Eleven.
Destiny number calculated from all letters: oxygen: 6 + 6 + 7 + 7 + 5 + 5 = 36, reduced: 9, and the final result is Nine.
