The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

1. The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

How is the periodic table like the map you used on your last road trip? In this lesson, you will be introduced to the periodic table, the road map of chemists. We will discuss how the elements are organized and how you can use this organization to identify some of their major physical properties.

Atomic and Ionic Radii: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

2. Atomic and Ionic Radii: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

Atoms are VERY tiny. How do we measure their size? This lesson will explain how the size of an atom is measured and teach you how to predict the relative size of an atom based on where it is located on the periodic table.

Ionization Energy: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

3. Ionization Energy: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

Do you know someone who has undergone radiation as a form of cancer treatment? Have you ever thought about why X-rays have health risks? Watch the video to find out what these types of radiation are really doing to atoms, define ionization energy and identify ionization trends on the periodic table.

Electronegativity: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

4. Electronegativity: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

How is fluorine like a child that doesn't share his or her toys? Find out in this video on electronegativity where we will discuss group and periodic trends among the elements.

The Diagonal Relationship, Metallic Character, and Boiling Point

5. The Diagonal Relationship, Metallic Character, and Boiling Point

What may have once seemed like a bunch of random squares with letters in them is now shaping up to be one very organized chemistry reference. In this lesson you will discover three other trends that are found on the periodic table: the diagonal relationship, trends in metallic character, and trends in boiling point.

Transition Metals vs. Main Group Elements: Properties and Differences

6. Transition Metals vs. Main Group Elements: Properties and Differences

Which is better: to be steadfast and consistent or to be a colorful chameleon? This lesson compares and contrasts the main group elements and the transition metals. Then make your own decision!
