A brief introduction to the Periodic Table

  1. 1. The periodic table - introduction Lesson 71 Atoms and The Periodic Table Prepared by JGL 12/27/2011
  2. 2. What is the Periodic Table? A tabular arrangement of the elements according to their atomic numbers so that elements with similar properties are in the same column. This is an easy reference chart for chemists to use to interpret the properties of groups of elements, rather than try to memorize all the properties of Syllabuselement each objective met: Recognize that elements are arranged in a systematic way2 Atoms and The Periodic Table Prepared by JGL 12/27/2011
  3. 3. The Periodic Table To simplify matters all elements are given a symbol (somewhat like a nickname) Other information can also be included such as Ar, and Z3 Atoms and The Periodic Table Prepared by JGL 12/27/2011
  4. 4. Elements and symbols Element Symbol Atomic Electronic Number (Z) configuration Syllabus objective met: Hydrogen H 1 1 Helium He 2 2 Recognize that each Lithium Li 3 2,1 element has a unique atomic number and Beryllium Be 4 2,2 symbol Boron B 5 2,3 Carbon C 6 2,4 Know the first twenty elements in order and Nitrogen N 7 2,5 their symbols Oxygen O 8 2,6 Fluorine F 9 2,7 Neon Ne 10 2,84 Atoms and The Periodic Table Prepared by JGL 12/27/2011
  5. 5. Elements and symbols Element Symbol Atomic Electronic Number (Z) configuration Sodium Na 11 2,8,1 Magnesium Mg 12 2,8,2 Aluminium Al 13 2,8,3 Silicon Si 14 2,8,4 Phosphorus P 15 2,8,5 Sulphur S 16 2,8,6 Chlorine Cl 17 2,8,7 Argon Ar 18 2,8,8 Potassium K 19 2,8,8,1 Calcium Ca 20 2,8,8,25 Atoms and The Periodic Table Prepared by JGL 12/27/2011
