This course covers the Chemistry Topic of the Periodic Table. The early periodic table is very different from the modern version as more elements have either been discovered or synthesized. Elements are forged within the great chemistry-set of the solar system. These are the building blocks of the Universe.
This course will investigate the evolution of the modern version of the periodic table. As our knowledge has grown, so too have the number of elements which we can call upon for specialized scientific needs.
Groups are sets of elements that have common attributes or properties. Group 0 are what are known as the Noble Gases. Group 1 contains the Alkali Metals. Group 7 are the Halogens. How do they reach other substances such as air and water?
Learn the language of the periodic table, such as the Octet Rule, Oxidation, Reduction, Displacement Reactions and Ion. These flashcards will help you recall the important terms in this branch of chemistry.
There are ten questions here to test your understanding of what we have covered in the periodic table course, so far. These questions are mostly multiple choice, with some fill in the blanks for specific reactions.
Some of the most common elements used by our species are what are known as Transition Metals. Iron, copper and titanium are some examples. These also share many common properties such as similar melting points...etc
These notes contain practical experiments to conduct with regard to this course on the Periodic Table. These experiments should be performed in a laboratory and, as always, all necessary safety regulations should be observed.
