    The Periodic Table. The Periodic Table is an arrangement of the chemical elements and is one of the most important references for anyone doing chemistry. The elements on The Periodic Table are arranged according to their atomic number and their electronic configuration. The atomic number is listed next to the chemical symbol for the element in the top left corner. The atomic number can also be known as the Proton number of an element. The electron configuration of an atom is the representation the

    The chemical element Mercury is has the symbol Hg. The symbol Hg stands for its Latinized Greek name Hydragyrum that defines silvery or watery liquid. It has an atomic number of 80 and an atomic mass of 200.59. It is in group 12 of the periodic table, mercury has a melting point of 234.3210K (-38.8290 °C, −37.8922 °F) and boiling point of 629.88 K (356.73 °C, 674.11 °F). According to CNR, Mercury weighs 13.6 times as much as the volume of water. The element Mercury is name after the fastest moving

    Tungsten The chemical element tungsten, atomic number 74, is listed as a transition metal in group VIB on the Periodic Table of Elements. Tungsten was formerly known by the Germanic name Wolfram, after the tungsten mineral wolframite, hence its chemical symbol W. The name tungsten was derived from the Swedish words tung and sten, meaning heavy stone, because of its high density. Discovery of the element is credited to Spanish brothers Fausto Jermin and nobleman Juan Jose de Elhuyar in the early

    Arranges elements in order of increasing relative atomic mass. Mendeleev realised that the physical and chemical properties of elements were related to their atomic mass, ordering them so that groups of elements with mutual properties fell into vertical columns in his table. Due to the pattern in which the elements have been arranged, the table fails to indicate the element’s atomic number. While Mendeleev is most often regarded as the founder of the Periodic Table, his table was the first to gain

    world for metallurgy and healing purposes. Alchemy is the science of converting elements by creating various concoctions through an array of other living things or minerals and transmutations of base metals such as lead to gold. It is the tincturing of metals chemically manipulating "prime matter" (mixture of lead, tin, copper, and iron) through a series of black, white yellow and purple stages (Brock, The Chemical Tree: A History of Chemistry 13). Alchemy’s purpose, the transmutation of an otherwise

    Introduction: The Periodic Table of Elements is a table that arranges all known chemical elements by order of their atomic numbers. During the 1600s, vast amounts of knowledge about the properties of elements and their compounds were discovered and by 1869 63 elements had been discovered. As more and more elements were discovered, scientists began to recognise similarities between their properties and began to devise means of classification. Thus the periodic table of elements was created. The current periodic

    Abstract The Periodic Table of Elements is commonly used today when studying elements. This table’s history begins in ancient times when Greek scientists first started discovering different elements. Over the years, many different forms of the periodic table have been made which set the basis for the modern table we use today. This table includes over 100 elements and are arranged by groups and periods. Groups being vertical columns and periods being horizontal columns. With all of the research

    Analytical chemists will use different types of analysis to identify chemical compounds and their properties. Some tests they may use to conduct this analysis include calorimetry, spectroscopy and chromatography. This type of workis used in a wide variety of industries such as mining and metal production industries. Environmental Environmental chemists investigate chemical phenomena in nature and the human effects on these. They use many of the same tests as analytical chemists to accomplish this
