The modern periodic table is one of the most important pieces of work in chemistry, and can be found in every science classroom. It lists all the known elements, but what makes each element unique?
Scientists know about the structure of the element atoms, and this is now expected knowledge for all Chemistry students. It would be impossible to simply memorise them, but the periodic table is a useful tool that lets us calculate what we need to know using a few simple rules.
This lesson covers the steps involved in the determination of the number of each subatomic particle present in each element atom, as well as their arrangement.
This is a great class in how to use the Periodic Table, a valuable lesson students will use time and time again in future studies.
