Periodic Nature of Properties: WebQuest Elements are substances with specific physical and chemical properties, and each element is unique— no two elements have exactly the same properties. The periodic table arranges the elements on the basis of their properties. Click on the Elements link at the Chem4Kids web site. Use this information and the information at the Interactive Periodic Table to learn more about the periodic table and its arrangement of elements. 1.How is the placement of an element determined? The placement of an element on the Periodic Table is determined by atomic weight. 2.What is a period? How many periods are found in the periodic table? A period is a horizontal row in the periodic table. They’re 7 periods found in the periodic table. 3.What is a group? How many groups does the periodic table contain? A group is a column of elements in the periodic table. They are 18 groups in the periodic table. 4.How are the atomic structures of elements within the same period similar?

Unformatted text preview: The atomic structures of elements within the same period are similar because they have the same number of atomic orbitals. 5.How are the atomic structures of elements within the same group similar? The atomic structures of elements within the same period are similar because they have the same number of atomic orbitals. Now examine the periodic table and the properties of elements in more detail. Use the periodic table web sites to explore the similarities and differences between elements. Elements within the periodic table are often grouped into categories. Complete the chart below to find out the characteristics of these categories.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
