Chemistry: WebElements Periodic Table (426 words)
The periodic "law" of chemistry recognises that many properties of the chemical elements are periodic functions of their atomic number (the number of protons within the element's atomic nucleus).
The periodic table is an arrangement of the chemical elements ordered by atomic number in columns (groups) and rows (periods) presented so as to emphasize their periodic properties.
The element polonium is very much in the news at present, perhaps for the first time ever, and for the wrong reasons.
Redox Reactions (827 words)
So far we have considered that all elements in positive oxidation states begin their existance in water as hydrated cations and then undergo reactions between the cations and the water to "neutralize" their positive charge.
In a given family, the group oxidation number is least stable at the top of the family (second Period) and at the bottom of the family (sixth Period).
The trends across a Period are the same as in the p-Block Elements while the trends dow a family are different.
