Weekly Puzzles #7 - Science Edition

RULES


There are three puzzles, each sets of seven clues. On the first day, I'll release one clue for each puzzle. The three puzzles range from easy to hard and you have to find the thing that connects the clues. If you think that you know the answer, put it in the comments and I'll tell you if you're right. If you want to figure the puzzles out yourself, don't open the comments. This is for fun. Clues will be added around 5:00 PM UTC/12:00 PM EST/9:00 AM Pacific daily. You can guess once after each clue is added and all guesses after that will be ignored.

Still incorrect, hydrogen is the only one that wouldn't fit the rule.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I just realized what I had to be more specific with. I'll have to come back tomorrow, tho. I was so excited that i found a connection, that I forgot to check If I could be more specific.

I think the reason the easy puzzle was so difficult for me was because being an aspiring chemist myself, I was looking at the properties of the elements so much, that I forgot to check the basic stuff.

It's important to remember that it was the easy puzzle. I can't make them too hard because I'm worried that it'll scare away new users.
