EtymologyEdit

From ("gas") and 丿 (a basic stroke of Chinese characters, called (piě, "to discard")). The pronunciation piē came partly from "丿" (piě, the stroke name), partly from the European name (protium). Pronounced with a yinping tone, by analogy with (dāo, "deuterium"), (chuān, "tritium"). See also (qīng, "hydrogen").

Han characterEdit

(radical 84 +1, 5 strokes, cangjie input 人弓中 (ONL), four-corner 80217, composition丿)
