For which element(s) is/are the chemical symbols indicative of the element's americanized name?

Answer 1

I don't know if you mean both letters of the symbol must be the first two letters of the element, or just the first letter must be the same; I'll choose the latter option, for the fun of it!

I suppose I can give you a complete list in order of increasing atomic number, #Z# (you can find these from the periodic table yourself):
The ones in #sfcolor(red)("red"# are those that have symbols derived from Latin roots (which may be what you're looking for):

Answer 2

Some elements' chemical symbols correspond to their Americanized names. For instance, W stands for tungsten; Na for sodium; Fe for iron; and Cu for copper.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
