Welcome to the course on ''Learn periodic table with it's basic concepts in Chemistry''
The periodic table is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, ordered by their atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties, whose structure shows periodic trends. Generally, within one row (period) the elements are metals to the left, and non-metals to the right, with the elements having similar chemical behaviors placed in the same column. Table rows are commonly called periods and columns are called groups. Six groups have accepted names as well as assigned numbers: for example, group 17 elements are the halogens; and group 18 are the noble gases. Also displayed are four simple rectangular areas or blocks associated with the filling of different atomic orbitals.
The organization of the periodic table can be used to derive relationships between the various element properties, but also the predicted chemical properties and behaviors of undiscovered or newly synthesized elements. Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev was the first to publish a recognizable periodic table in 1869, developed mainly to illustrate periodic trends of the then-known elements. He also predicted some properties of unidentified elements that were expected to fill gaps within the table. Most of his forecasts proved to be correct. Mendeleev's idea has been slowly expanded and refined with the discovery or synthesis of further new elements and the development of new theoretical models to explain chemical behavior. The modern periodic table now provides a useful framework for analyzing chemical reactions, and continues to be widely used in chemistry, nuclear physics and other sciences.
Whether you have a test coming up or just want to learn something new, the periodic table of elements is a helpful tool to know. Memorizing all 118 elements may seem tricky, especially since each one has a unique symbol and atomic number. Fortunately, if you start early, you can learn a few elements every day. Mnemonic devices, phrases, and pictures will boost your memory while making studying enjoyable. If you’re ready to test your skills, try a few games or even draw a table completely from memory. If you find the periodic table confusing and difficult to understand, you aren’t alone! Understanding how it works can be hard, but learning how to read it will help you be successful in the sciences. Start by recognizing the structure of the periodic table and what this tells you about each element. Next, you can study each element. Finally, use the information provided on the periodic table to find the number of neutrons in an atom.
An element's atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of a single atom of that element. The atomic number of an element or isotope cannot change, so you can use the atomic number to help figure out other characteristics, such as the number of electrons and neutrons in an atom.
