Is the following statement True or False?
secondly, is it possible to encrypt every message this way?
(In reply to Another wild guess
I think e.g. is on to something. In fact, I give e.g. the credit for solving this problem.
Lanthanoids: 68 is Er Erbium
Actinoids: 99 is Es Einsteinium
102 is No Nobelium
P is Period
G is Group
Hydroden is P1, G1 (for example)
Helium is P1, G18
So the message is:
"No canoes sink in water"
Q1: This statement is false, since a canoe made of lead would sink, or a canoe with a hole in it would sink
Q2: Not all messages can be encrypted this way since some letters are not represented by symbols of elements
