Which chemical element in the periodic table has the shortest name?

Answer:

Tin

Tin is a chemical element with the symbol Sn and atomic number 50. Tin is a silvery metal that characteristicly has a faint yellow hue. Tin, like indium, is soft enough to be cut without much force. When a bar of tin is bent the so-called "tin cry" can be heard as a result of sliding tin crystals reforming; this trait is shared by indium, cadmium and frozen mercury. Tin has the shortest name with only three letters while the other elements have four or more letters.
