Extraction of Aluminum, Copper, Zinc & Iron

1. Extraction of Aluminum, Copper, Zinc & Iron

This lesson will talk about extraction of some metals like aluminum, copper, zinc and iron. It will discuss some processes like electrolysis, carbon reduction and self reduction.

Group 5A Elements: Definition & Properties

2. Group 5A Elements: Definition & Properties

The group 5A elements aren't as recognizable as other elements on the periodic table, but they are important nonetheless. This lesson will examine properties they share and will give some examples of why this group is so important.

Chalcogens (Group 6A Elements): Definition & Properties

3. Chalcogens (Group 6A Elements): Definition & Properties

Some can kill you, some are useful, and one is vital to your survival. Welcome to the chalcogens! This lesson will list common properties, and will then share some uses and characteristics of these diverse Group 6A elements.

Halogens (Group 7A Elements): Definition & Properties

4. Halogens (Group 7A Elements): Definition & Properties

The halogens are a group of non-metals that share several properties. This lesson will examine these properties and will also look at the many uses of these group 7A elements.

Noble Gases (Group 8A Elements): Definition & Properties

5. Noble Gases (Group 8A Elements): Definition & Properties

The noble gases are an inert group of elements with some fun and fascinating uses. This lesson will explore the properties that the noble gases share and will look at some of their uses.

D-Block Elements: Properties & Electron Configuration

6. 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.

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

7. F-Block Elements on the Periodic Table: Properties & Overview

The periodic table is a highly organized collection of the basic characteristics for all elements known to man. The atomic structure and characteristics of f-block elements are somewhat mysterious. Here's why.
