EVERY DAY DURING Maths Week, we came up with a little puzzle to wreck your head.

And the scientists of Ireland wanted in. So to celebrate Science Week, which launched on Sunday, we have a different brainteaser for you every day this week.

Here’s tonight’s offering:

I am a chemical symbol for an element.This element was discovered in 1824.I am a Spanish word without the accent.

Reverse me so I become a form of a common verb.

What symbol am I?

Answers will be revealed on Friday. But if you want to start a discussion, feel free to leave your answers in the comments section.
