  • The Periodic Table

    Discovery and Organization of the Periodic Table In order to understand the periodic table, a basic knowledge in the terminology would be very helpful. A periodic table a chart organizing elements by atomic numbers and chemical properties into groups and periods. The periodic table was created in order to easily find and classify the different elements that are known. Elements are pure substances composed of just one type of atom that cannot be broken down into anything simpler by ordinary chemical means. Some examples are Oxygen, Carbon, Gold, and Silver. [Source A] An atomic number is the number of protons or electrons in an atom, the number that appears over the element symbol. The Periodic Table is a tool used by many to solve different…

  • Chemistry As A Periodic Table

    What is a Periodic Table and what is it used for in science and our everyday lives? On entering the chemistry laboratory at Mercer University, for Science 100 a large colorful chart displaying rows and columns of cells, was hanging over the chalkboard. I immediately felt a bit intimidated and my heart began racing. I questioned myself as to what am I about to experience? Moving closer to examine the chart, I felt as if the bright colors on the chart were generating warmth (energy) and…

  • Essay On The Periodic Table Of Elements

    History of the periodic table of elements The periodic table of elements is an organized table of all chemical elements identified and recognized. Most forms of the table commonly include information such as each element’s atomic number, chemical properties, and electron configuration. Prior to the periodic table, the elements were arranged in groups of three called triads. These triads were created by Johann Dobereiner, a German chemist, in 1829. Dobereiner arranged these elements in groups of…

  • The Periodic Table: The Discovery Of Elements

    The periodic table we know today is very organized and accurate. It shows 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…

  • Periodic Table Research Paper

    The periodic table had been a key factor in many ways to finding new elements, like scandium, silicon, and neon. It has shown new ways those elements could help us by predicting certain elements reactions. While Dimitri Ivanovich Mendeleev is considered to be the creator of the periodic table, there were many contributions that helped the creation of the useful graph be achieved. Between 1817 and 1829 Johann Dobereiner was grouping elements with similar properties into groups of threes,…

  • The Basis Of Mendeleev's Periodic Table

    The basis of Mendeleev’s periodic table was categorizing the elements according to their physical and chemical characteristics with regard to their atomic weights. Mendeleev was the first to come up with a structure for the periodic table with columns and rows. There were other scientists who have worked on tabulating information of the elements even before Mendeleev, however, he was the first scientist to come up with a periodic trend to predict the properties of elements which were not…

  • Chemistry And Chemistry: Atoms And The Periodic Table

    Chlorine is an element that consists of 17 protons, an average of 18.5 neutrons and 17 electrons. It has an atomic number of 17, and an average nuclear charge of 35.5. There are 2 isotopes of chlorine that are 35Cl and 37Cl. 35Cl has an atomic mass of 35 and a natural abundance of 75%. 37Cl has an atomic mass of 37 and a natural abundance of 25%. The average atomic mass or nuclear charge equates to 35.5. Both of the isotopes have the same atomic number. (BBC Bitesize. Atoms and the periodic…

  • Dmitri Mendeleev: The Creation Of The Periodic Table?

    Introduction: Dmitri Mendeleev is accredited with the creation of the periodic table but in reality, many scientists have contributed in the years leading up to the production. Before people could even write they knew some of the elements that are on the periodic table. The elements include silver, gold, copper, tin, lead, and mercury (substances that could not be broken down chemically). Not until 1649 did a man by the name of Hennig Brand discover phosphorous (an element) through…

  • The Differences Of Mendeleev And Modern Periodic Tables

    proposed a “periodic table of elements” on the base of periodic repetition of properties. In 1864, before Mendeleev, and John Newlands arranged the elements in order of atomic mass where every eight elements has similar properties. He called the relationship “the law of octaves”. Even so, this law could not be applied for the elements beyond Calcium, so it was not accepted by the scientific community. The modern periodic table is thought to be the outermost ground-state electron configuration…

  • How Did Demitri Mendeleeve Invented The Periodic Table

    who invented the first periodic table in 1869. The periodic table he made was very different from the modern day periodic table we know today. Henry Moseley updated Mendeleev's version of the periodic table in 1915. This is more like the periodic table that we know and use today. The only difference is that there has been many more elements added. Mendeleeve also had predicted a lot of the characteristics and properties of elements that would fill up some of the spaces that he left in his…
