New periodic table really brings the elements to life.
If thinking about the sub-atomic world leaves you scratching your head, then this new periodic table of elements might make things a bit clearer.
The periodic table is one of the most fascinating wonders of the scientific world. As scientists began to explore the elements and their atomic numbers, they were able to accurately predict the existence of elements that had not been discovered yet.
In exploring the periodic table, you can tangibly see the difference in each elemental number as the proton, neutron and electron numbers change in minute details. By doing even simple scientific experiments, you can see the way the different elements react with one another.
While this design has been created to help children with their science homework, it has captured the minds of many adults, too.
All this sounds fascinating but perhaps the most amazing part of studying the elements is seeing how they play a part in all of our lives. The elements that were created in the big bang billions of years ago help us cook, wash our clothes and get from a to b.
The Period Table of the Elements, in Pictures and Words has been created to show in which ways the elements help us in our daily lives. For example did you know that paint only exists thanks to the element of Cadmium? Or that Mobile phones were developed with the help of Tantalum?
This creative periodic table has been created by Boeing software engineer Keith Enevoldsen, and has been designed with gaps, to fit in the new elements that we know are out there, that just haven’t been discovered yet.
The periodic table is available to buy in poster form, great for classrooms and bedrooms, and is also available to view online here.
