Is nitrogen and phosphorous similar?

    In some ways, yes. As stable atoms they have the same covalent charge as they are both in the same column. This gives them some of the same reactive properties, but phosphorous is a trace element necessary in plant life, also used on tracer bullets. Nitrogen is a gas at room temp and is a large part of our atmospheric air. For their chemical similarities, they are two totally different elements still.
