Development of the Periodic Table
• Outline the steps in the historical development of the periodic table. • Predict similarities in properties of the elements by using the periodic table.

The periodic table evolved over time as scientists discovered more useful ways to compare and organize the elements.

• The idea that the physical and chemical properties of the elements repeat in a regular pattern when they are arranged in order of increasing atomic number is known as the periodic law. each row begins with a metal and ends with a noble gas. 3.) • With the exception of the first row.The Modern Periodic Table (cont.2 Assessment # 1. • Section 3. 4 .

. • The period number of an element is the same as the number of its outermost energy level. are known as the noble gases.Periods and Groups (cont.) • Group 18 elements. which have the maximum number of eight valence electrons and are generally unreactive.

Periods and Groups (cont.) • Because elements in the same group have the same number of valence electrons. they have similar properties. .

Periods and Groups (cont.) • Common names for some groups – alkali metals in group 1 – alkaline earth metals in group 2 – halogens in group 17 – noble gases in group 18 .

• The modern periodic law states that the physical and chemical properties of the elements repeat in a regular pattern when they are arranged in order of increasing atomic number. Mendeleev organized the elements according to increasing atomic mass and placed elements with similar properties into groups.Key Concepts • In his periodic table. .

Key Concepts • Atomic structure and the number of valence electrons can be related to an element’s position on the periodic table. • The number of valence electrons and how tightly they are held determine the chemical properties of an element. nonmetals. • Elements are classified as metals. • The conductivity of semiconductors can be increased by adding small amounts of other elements. . or metalloids.
