    Tin is a Chemical element its symbol is Sn. Its location on the periodic table of elements is period 5 group 14. Its atomic number is 50 and the atomic weight is 118.71. It has 50 protons, 50 electrons, and 69 neutrons. Tin is a solid, ductile, malleable, silvery-white metal. Tin melts at a low temperature of about 232 °C (450 °F). Tin resists corrosion from water, but can be attacked by acids. Around 5000 years ago, humans first began mining and incorporating tin with copper to create bronze thus marking the beginning of the Bronze Age. Around 3,000 B.C.

    The noble gases are the group of elements which are like no other elements. The noble gases are the elements grouped as the last group, group 18. These elements, from smallest to greatest atomic mass, are Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, and Radon. Group 18 wasn't always called the noble gases. this group used to be called the inert gassses. They changed the name of thisi group because they are not always inert, or chemically inactive. the first element in this group is the element…

    He additionally published several books including “Elementary Treatise of Chemistry” which is known as the first modern Chemistry textbook. While his textbook did have a few errors it made important advancements such as defining a chemical element as a substance that cannot be reduced in weight by a chemical reaction. Not only did he make these discoveries and observations but he also assisted in creating the metric…

    Chapter 11, “The Chemical Elements”, was of great interest to me. “Chemistry is the study is the study of the composition and structure of matter (anything that has mass) and the chemical reactions by which substances are changed into other substances (James T. Shipman 285).” In this summary paper, I will discuss some of the highlights of the chapter. The way I see it, God is the original/first chemist. He took His own creations (the elements in our Periodic Table) to make provisions for…

    diatomic elements. Bromine is one of two elements that holds the natural state of liquid. I chose bromine for my independent paper because of many other elements I knew little to none about, I have never heard of bromine and was interested to learn more. The bromine name was derived from the word bromos, meaning “bad smell” or “stench”. Whilst being in group 7, Bromine contains the electron configuration: 1s22s22p63s23p63d104s24p5 or [Ar] 3d104s24p6. The physical appearance of bromine…

    all of the elements that have been discovered and has them arranged and by their chemical properties, atomic masses, and electron configurations. In order to construct the periodic table, every element had to be discovered. Elements such as gold, tin, lead, and copper have been widely known and used since ancient times, however, the first discovery of an element wasn’t made until 1649 by Hennig Brand when he discovered phosphorus. Over the next 200 years, chemists would acquire the basic…
