Ch 28: Periodic Table & Electronic Configuration

About This Chapter

Enhance your knowledge of the periodic table and electronegativity by reviewing the short video lessons and taking the self-assessment quizzes in this chapter. Our resources can help you accomplish your academic goals such as gearing up for a big test or getting help with your homework.

Periodic Table & Electronic Configuration- Chapter Summary

To learn more about the periodic table, work through the lessons available to you in this chapter. These lessons were made to help you learn about valence electrons and review the properties of S-block elements. You'll go over the properties of D- and P-block elements and examine electronegativity and electron affinity trends. The short video lessons will help you obtain the following objectives:

  • Define valence electrons
  • State properties of S-block elements
  • Describe electron configuration in D-block elements
  • Explain general information about P-block elements
  • Understand the degree of attraction
  • Identify the equation used for electron affinity

Our instructors teach these lessons to you in a way that is not only informative, but also easy for you to understand. If you find yourself struggling to retain the material or you have any questions, our instructors are available to address any of your concerns, making you more confident to retain this material. The Dashboard feature allows you to ask questions and also can help you organize and keep up with your progress through the lessons.

Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

1. Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

The periodic table contains a wealth of information. This lesson will explain how to use it to quickly determine the most useful information about the most important electrons. We will be focusing our discussion on valence electrons and energy levels.

S-Block Elements on the Periodic Table: Properties & Overview

2. S-Block Elements on the Periodic Table: Properties & Overview

Take a tour of the s-block of the periodic table and get to know the elements inside. Learn all about the s-block elements, including some of their distinguishing properties, then quiz yourself on your knowledge.

D-Block Elements: Properties & Electron Configuration

3. D-Block Elements: Properties & Electron Configuration

In this lesson, we'll explore the d-block elements, which are the transitional elements situated in the center of the periodic table of elements. Read on to learn about this block of elements as well as how they behave.

P-Block Elements on the Periodic Table: Properties & Overview

4. P-Block Elements on the Periodic Table: Properties & Overview

Come on a tour of the p-block, an area on the periodic table filled with an incredibly diverse group of elements. Learn what the p-block elements are, discover some of their properties, and then assess your new knowledge with a quiz.

Electronegativity: Definition & Trends

5. Electronegativity: Definition & Trends

The attraction of electrons is different depending on the element. This degree of attraction is measured by the element's electronegativity. In this lesson, we will discuss electronegativity, its trends in the periodic table, and bonding.

Electron Affinity: Definition, Trends & Equation

6. Electron Affinity: Definition, Trends & Equation

When an electron is added to an atom, a change in energy occurs. This change in energy is what we call the electron affinity. In this lesson, we will discuss electron affinity and its general trend in the periodic table.
