An Alien Periodic Table
* Use information about a group of elements to arrange them into correct periods and groups.
* Relate a model periodic table to the actual periodic table.
* Copy of alien table of information for a group of elements
1) Study the information on your table of alien elaments.
2) Cut out the boxes for each element and arrange the boxes into a periodic pattern like the one shown.
DATA AND OBSERVATIONS:
1)Explain how you decided the order of the families and elements.
I organized the elements by their discription in the upper left corner, secondly I organized them by their state of matter.
2)Which is the lightest element on the alien periodic table? Which is the heaviest?
? (a gas element) was the lightest element and a sqaure root sign (a crystal element) was the heaviest.
3) How are the methods you used similiar to or different from the methods employed by Dmitri Mendeleev?
I used the way the rest of the table was completed to find the sensible order to fill in the gaps.
This lab was hard to complete at first, but then you gave us a couple of clues that still led me to no conclusion whatsoever. It wasn\'t clear to me what the pattern was until the table was completed for me with your clues. Now that I see the table completed, the logic used to get it makes sense. The experiment reminded me of the game I used to play with lucky charms and alpha- bets. Except for this game is a lot more complicated. Dmitri must have been a very smart fellow.

The Fear of ScienceThe Fear of Science The Fear of Science To live in the today\'s world is to be surrounded by the products of science. For it is science that gave our society color television, the bottle of aspirin, and the polyester shirt. Thus, science has greatly enhanced our society; yet, our society are still afraid of the effect of science. This fear of science can be traced back to the nineteenth century where scientist had to be secretative in experimenting with science. Although science did wonders in t

Nuclear Weapon’s FutureNuclear Weapon’s Future For almost a half a century, the United States and the U.S.S.R. fought a nuclear arms war, the “Cold War.” The “Cold War” officially ended August 19, 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed. Ironically, the war ended without a battle or a shot fired. In fact, nuclear weapons have only been used once. In the Second World War, the United States dropped two nuclear bombs, one on Hiroshima, the other on Nagasaki. So, what is the future of the Nuclear Weapons Policy, housed in t
Dietary Guidelines for North Americans and SuggestDietary Guidelines for North Americans and Suggestions for Food Choices In today\'s society nearly everyone follows some kind of dietary guidelines. Whether it is in the goal of losing weight, gaining weight or just simply to maintain it, people are jumping onto the dietary band-wagon. A diet is basically to take food according to rule, a mode of living in reference to nourishment. There are various types of diets that one can follow; a high or low calorie diet, low fat diets, diets modified in
Acetylation of FerroceneAcetylation of Ferrocene 17. October 1996 Experiment #7 Introduction In this lab we will be utilizing the Friedel Crafts process of acetylation of ferrocene. Ferrocene is an atom of iron bounded by two aromatic rings. We will use some reagents that will cause the ferrocene to add either one acetyl group to an aromatic ring or add two acetyl groups to each of the aromatic rings. In order to determine how well this process had worked we employed: IR spectra analysis, column chromatography, and a l
Historical Development of Atomic StructureHistorical Development of Atomic Structure Yazan Fahmawi Sept. 30, 1995 T3 IBS Chemistry Ms. Redman The idea behind the atom goes back to the Ancient Greek society, where scientists believed that all matter was made of smaller, more fundamental particles called elements. They called these particles atoms, meaning not divisible. Then came the chemists and physicists of the 16th and 17th centuries who discovered various formulae of various salts and water, hence discovering the idea of a molec
GalliumGallium 1871 Dmitrii Ivanovich Mendelev predicts the existance and properties of the element after zinc in the periodictable. He Gives it the name eka aluminium. 1875 Paul Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran discovers gallium. Its properties closely match those predicted by Mendelev. Gallium, atomic number 31, is very similar to aluminum in its chemical properties. It does not dissolve in nitric acid because of the protective film of gallium oxide that is formed over the surface by the action of the a
The Noble GasesThe Noble Gases The Noble Gases are the far right elements on the periodictable. On the earth they are scarce so we don¹t see much of them. They are do not react well with anything. In fact until around the 50¹s they hadn¹t found anything that they would react with any of the gases. But then someone found out that Fluorine one the of most reactive elements could form compounds with Xenon. Later they found that it could react with most of the other nobles. Helium is one of the more scarce nobles
OxygenOxygen Oxygen and its compounds play a key role in many of the important processes of life and industry. Oxygen in the biosphere is essential in the processes of respiration and metabolism, the means by which animals derive the energy needed to sustain life. Furthermore, oxygen is the most abundant element at the surface of the Earth. In combined form it is found in ores, earths, rocks, and gemstones, as well as in all living organisms. Oxygen is a gaseous chemical element in Group VA of the per
Rates of ReactionRates of Reaction BACKGROUND INFORMATION What affects the rate of reaction? 1) The surface area of the magnesium. 2) The temperature of the reaction. 3) Concentration of the hydrochloric acid. 4) Presence of a catalyst. In the experiment we use hydrochloric acid which reacts with the magnesium to form magnesium chloride. The hydrogen ions give hydrochloric acid its acidic properties, so that all solutions of hydrogen chloride and water have a sour taste; corrode active metals, forming metal chlo
SiliconSilicon Silicon is the raw material most often used in integrated circuit (IC) fabrication. It is the second most abundant substance on the earth. It is extracted from rocks and common beach sand and put through an exhaustive purification process. In this form, silicon is the purist industrial substance that man produces, with impurities comprising less than one part in a billion. That is the equivalent of one tennis ball in a string of golf balls stretching from the earth to the moon. Semicondu

The AtomThe Atom AP Physics Period 2 In the spring of 1897 J.J. Thomson demonstrated that the beam of glowing matter in a cathode-ray tube was not made of light waves, as the almost unanimous opinion of German physicists held. Rather, cathode rays were negatively charged particles boiling off the negative cathode and attracted to the positive anode. These particles could be deflected by an electric field and bent into curved paths by a magnetic field. They were much lighter than hydrogen atoms and wer
The Comparative Abundance of The ElementsThe Comparative Abundance of The Elements By Derrick Deacon - There are 92 naturally occurring elements, only 17 of them make up 99.5% of the earth\'s crust (including oceans and atmosphere). - In living things (plants, animals, people) the six most abundant elements are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur. - The universe is dominated by the elements hydrogen (83%) and helium (16%) 1. The Crust The outside of the earth is a thin crust which is approximately 20 to 40km thick
XenonXenon Xenon is element number 54 on the periodictable of the elements. It has a mass of roughly 131 atomic mass units. There are 77 neutrons and 54 protons in the nucleus of the atom. The symbol for xenon is Xe and it belongs to the family of elements called the noble gases. It is called a noble gas because the valance shell of one atom contains a full shell. Xenon is one of the most stable elements on the table. The 54 electrons are arranged, so that there are 2 in the 1st shell, 8 in the 2nd,
MagnesiumMagnesium Magnesium is the twelfth element on the periodictable. It is located in the second group called the alkaline earth metals. Natural magnesium contains three different isotopes, and there are twelve others that are recognized. Seawater is a rich source of magnesium in the form of salt. Magnesium is the eighth most abundant element in the earth\'s crust. Magnesium readily ignites upon heating in air and burns with a dazzling white flame. To extinguish the flame water should not be used.
ReductionimsReductionims The concept of reductionism has become an overlooked part of our daily lives. The terms \'analytic\' and \'reductionist\' refer to a particular mental attitude or manner of thinking that has dominated the modern period and has replaced the synthetic and hierarchical pattern of thought. This transformation occurs in virtually every domain...including, theology, philosophy, literature, politics, economics, and art, but its typical seminal form is to be found in the sciences, the natur

Victims of jack the rippervictims of jack the ripper The Victims of Jack the Ripper Jack the Ripper is remembered as one of history’s most famous, daring, and heinous serial killers. His technique of getting his victims to lay down before he slashed their throats, then disemboweling them in a matter of a minute or two with as little blood flow as possible distinguishes him as one of the most methodical, ruthless killers to ever live. He even performed some of his gruesome murders right in the street and left his victims
Eternal Seeds Eternal Seeds The table lies abandoned and neglected suffocating fresh blades of grass. The blistering sun’s arms chip away at the decaying paint. The only attention it receives is from a colony of black ants which infest the cracks and crevices. This splintered wooden table once had a life, when it provided rest under the shadow of an umbrella made of orange tree leaves, where grapefruit pits replaced ants and banana peels adorned the surface like a table cloth. We spent countless summer days

Niels Henrik David BohrNiels Henrik David Bohr Born: 7 Oct 1885 in Copenhagen, Denmark Died: 18 Nov 1962 in Copenhagen, Denmark Niels Bohr studied at the University of Copenhagen which he entered in 1903. He won a gold medal from the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences for his theoretical analysis of vibrations of water jets as a means of determining surface tension. He received his Master\'s degree from the University of Copenhagen in 1909 and his doctorate in 1911 with a thesis Studies on the electron theory of metals.
BoronBoron Boron is in group 13 (or IIIa) of the periodictable. The pure element was first prepared in 1808 by the French chemists Joseph Gay-Lussac and Baron Louis Thénard, and independently by the British chemist Sir Humphry Davy. It is a trace element needed for plant growth, but can be deadly if used in excess. Research suggests that it is also nutritionally important for bone health in humans and other vertebrates. Pure boron is a powder. Boron melts at about 2180° C, boils at about 3650° C, an
ZirconiumZirconium Hi! I am Zirconium. You probably just looked at my name and figured that I came from the Arabic word zargun meaning gold color. Well, you are partially correct. Truthfully I do not have a gold color in my pure form. The gold color comes from the mineral zircon which I am actually derived from. I guess you could call zircon my parent. My grandparents are jargon, hyacinth, and jacinth. They are the elements who contain my parent zircon. When I am with my first parent zircon, I am a silic
