A soft silvery metal, Sodium can easily be cut with a knife.  It quickly tarnishes when exposed to air, turning darker at first and then developing a white coating.  Sodium is an essential element for all animals and some plants.  Table salt is a compound of Sodium and Chlorine (NaCl).  When introduced to a flame Sodium will turn it a bright yellow.
