Answer:

This one is easy, it is sulfur.

Explanation:

#Z#, the atomic number is the number of protons, positively charged nuclear particles. But #Z# defines the identity of the element, If #Z=1#, the element is hydrogen, #Z=2#, the element is helium, .............#Z=16#, the element is sulfur.

How did I know this? Well, I have access to a Periodic Table which lists all known elements according to atomic number. There should be a Periodic Table beside you now!
