First systemization attempts
In 1789, Antoine Lavoisier published a list of 33 chemical elements, grouping them into gases, metals, nonmetals, and earths; Chemists spent the following century searching for a more precise classification scheme. In 1829, Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner observed that many of the elements could be grouped into triads based on their chemical properties.Lithium, sodium, and potassium, for example, were grouped together in a triad as soft, reactive metals. Döbereiner also observed that, when arranged by atomic weight, the second member of each triad was roughly the average of the first and the third; this became known as the Law of Triads. German chemist Leopold Gmelin worked with this system, and by 1843 he had identified ten triads, three groups of four, and one group of five. Jean-Baptiste Dumas published work in 1857 describing relationships between various groups of metals. Although various chemists were able to identify relationships between small groups of elements, they had yet to build one scheme that encompassed them all.
In 1858, German chemist August Kekulé observed that carbon often has four other atoms bonded to it. Methane, for example, has one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms. This concept eventually became known as valency; different elements bond with different numbers of atoms. In 1864, fellow German chemist Julius Lothar Meyer published a table of the 49 known elements arranged by valency. The table revealed that elements with similar properties often shared the same valency.
English chemist John Newlands produced a series of papers in 1864 and 1865 noting that when the elements were listed in order of increasing atomic weight, similar physical and chemical properties recurred at intervals of eight; he likened such periodicity to the octaves of music.This Law of…...

Force Table

...GENERAL PHYSICS I EXPERIMENT NO. 5 FORCE TABLE — ADDITION AND RESOLUTION OF VECTORS INTRODUCTION Forces add together as vectors. For example, if two or more forces act at a point, a single force may act as the equivalent of the combination of forces. The resultant R of the sum of two force vectors A and B is a single force which produces the same effect as the two forces, when these pass through a common point (see figure). The equilibrant E is a force equal and opposite to the resultant. A vector may be broken up into components. To find the components of a vector in a particular coordinate system, one must find the vectors aligned with each of the perpendicular axes of the coordinate system which give the original vector when added together. METHODS FOR ADDING VECTORS PARALLELOGRAM METHOD & POLYGON METHOD To add two vectors, A + B by the parallelogram method a parallelogram is drawn of which two adjacent sides have magnitude and direction of A and B respectively. The diagonal of the parallelogram then has the same magnitude and direction as the resultant, R. Thus A + B = R. An equivalent method which may be used to add more than two vectors is to draw the vectors to be added “head to tail” (head of A to tail of B, head of B to tail of C, etc.). An arrow connecting the tail of the initial vector to the head of the final vector describes the vector sum of the vectors added. This is sometimes called the polygon method. COMPONENT METHOD To add two dimensional vectors by...

Periodic Elements Lab

...Periodic Properties of the Elements Objectives Analyze trends within groups and periods on the periodic table of elements. (Exploration 1) Determine the identity of seven mystery elements based on periodic table trends. (Exploration 2) Description of Activity In this activity, a partial periodic table is provided. You will select an element and evaluate the element’s physical properties. After selecting the element, you will analyze the patterns of these properties as they occur across a period as well as trends that exist down a group. You will identify several mystery elements by investigating and interpreting periodic trends. Remember that valence electrons are defined as the electrons in an atom’s outermost orbitals, which are the electrons involved in chemical bonding. Transition metals have a tendency to form more than one cation, and the trend associated with the number of valence electrons is therefore less predictable for the transition elements. Jump Start Dmitri Mendeleev organized the periodic table according to increasing atomic mass. How is the modern periodic table organized? Most of the current periodic tables include 108 or 109 elements. It is also important to notice how the modern periodic table is arranged. Although we have retained the format of rows and columns, which reflects a natural order, the rows of today's tables show elements in the order of Mendeleev's columns. Explain the difference between a chemical property and a physical...

... arranged by valency. The table revealed that elements with similar properties often shared the same valency. English chemist John Newlands produced a series of papers in 1864 and 1865 noting that when the elements were listed in order of increasing atomic weight, similar physical and chemical properties recurred at intervals of eight; he likened such periodicity to the octaves of music.This Law of Octaves, however, was ridiculed by Newlands' contemporaries, and the Chemical Society refused to publish his work.[7] Newlands was nonetheless able to draft a table of the elements and used it to predict the existence of missing elements, such as germanium. The Chemical Society only acknowledged the significance of his discoveries five years after they credited Mendeleev.[8] Mendeleev's table Dmitri Mendeleev Mendeleev's 1869 periodic table; note that his arrangement presents the periods vertically, and the groups horizontally. Russian chemistry professor Dmitri Mendeleev and German chemist Julius Lothar Meyerindependently published their periodic tables in 1869 and 1870, respectively. They both constructed their tables by listing the elements in rows or columns in order of atomic weight and starting a new row or column when the characteristics of the elements began to repeat. The success of Mendeleev's table came from two decisions he made. The first was to leave gaps in the table when it seemed that the corresponding element had not yet been discovered...

Table Manner

...Table manners are the rules of etiquette used while eating, which may also include the appropriate use of utensils. Different cultures observe different rules for table manners. Each family or group sets its own standards for how strictly these rules are to be enforced. And now my group will present to you table manners of Vietnam. Although we live in VN, something on the table I will present to you will make you surprise. Our presentation will divided into two parts: part 1 is about general table manners in Vietnam and part 2, Miss. Chau will present to you about the difference of manners among 3 parts of Vietnam. If you had any questions, please ask us after the presentation. Thank you. First of all, I will present to you general table manners in VN. This part is very long, so I will divided it into 2 parts: Part 1 I will present to you Vietnamese cuisine generally, part 2 I will show you some information about some manners you should learn when you eat in Vn, not the other country. Vietnamese cuisine includes the foods and beverages of Vietnam, and features a combination of five fundamental taste elements:n(Vietnamesegũ vị) in the overall meal. Each Vietnamese dish has a distinctive flavor which reflects one or more of these elements. Common ingredients includefish sauce, shrimp paste, soy sauce, rice, fresh herbs, and fruits and vegetables. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of oil, and reliance on herbs and...

The Periodic Table Summary

...English – The Periodic Table Online Summary The Periodic Table' gives an insight into the importance of chemistry in Levi's life.  On a very basic level it probably saved him at Auschwitz, where his professional experience meant he was selected for work in one of the IG Farben synthetic rubber factories attatched to the concentration camp ('Cerium') - far preferable to the back-breaking physical labour he would otherwise have had to perform.  Chemistry also provided Levi with a living before and after the war. But Levi looked for more than simply 'the tools to earn his living and have a secure life.'  In 'Hydrogen' Levi expresses what chemistry meant to him as a school boy:  'An indefinite cloud of future potentialities'...from which 'cloud I expected my law, the principle of order in me, around me and in the world.'  In 'Iron', as a chemistry degree student and with the war looming with all the terrible consequences that it would have for him, Levi explains to his friend Sandro how his view of chemistry has developed: Sandro was surprised when I tried to explain to him some of the ideas that at the time I was confusedly cultivating.  That the nobility of man, acquired in a hundred centuries of trial and error, lay in making himself the conquerer of matter, and that I had enrolled in chemistry because I wanted to remain faithful to this nobility.  That conquering matter is to understand it, and understanding matter is necessary to understanding the universe and ourselves...

E Table

...Touch Screen Restaurant Menus Increase Dining Experience Ordering food in a restaurant via iPad is so 2010. Think beyond the iPad. Imagine a future without waiters, without anyone asking you if you want sparkling or still. Without the condescending glance of a server who thinks they know so much. Imagine sitting down to dinner at a table lit by an overhead projector and interacting with the projections on the table in front of us. Our order? Placed by the swipe of a finger. This is the future of restaurants. These types of table first introduce London’s “inamo” restaurant called E-Table, the interactive ordering system is designed to give patrons “more control over their dining experience”.  A projector, which is installed in the ceiling above each table, projects an interactive menu on the tabletop.  Using a touch mouse pad, patrons can navigate the menu, place orders, choose a virtual tablecloth, and project images of each meal on their plates to help them decide which one to get.  The system isn’t only for placing orders – patrons can also use it to play video games, call a taxi, or watch the chef prepare their meals via a live webcam!  E-Table also offers a lot of perks to the restaurant owners, like reduced staff costs, an increase in customer spending, and a more efficient way to deal with customers. How it works: The E-Table system uses overhead projection to deliver a menu and other digital images to a restaurant table-top. Projected images do overlay food......

Round Table

...Round Table Management Practices MGT 330: Management for Organizations Professor Edris Gehy Jason Campbell 6/22/2014 Round Table Management Practices Management practices play crucial and decisive roles in allowing employees to work together for the accomplishment of common goals and objectives. An emphasis needs to be placed more upon reaching the predetermined goals just as much as to receive far better growth and progression for the company. There stays a great necessity to perform the business practices in a reliable way and with the successful implementation of management practices, the employees can be brought to together and learn to make the best possible use of available resources. Management practices guide and direct any organization to move forward along a proper path to ensure success. The management practices of planning, leading, organizing, staffing and controlling are being implemented in nearly all workplaces, and are able to derive far better results than previously unorganized systems. These five management functions have been validated and proven to be worthwhile in setting goals and objectives, and I will show the difference between management at my place of employment, and effective management in this paper. The initial step in effective managing is planning. This involves forming the mission, vision and objectives of the company and laying out a detailed plan for the way through these goals are to be attained. In the...

Periodic Table Essay

...In 1789, Laviosier wrote Traité Élémentaire de Chimie, which is the first modern chemistry textbook. The textbook included a list of simple substances, that Laviosier believed could not be broken down any further. The list, which included oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, mercury, zinc, and sulfur, was a basic outline for the modern periodic table. Russian chemist, Mendeleev, was the first scientist to construct a periodic table similar to the modern version. He organized elements according to increasing atomic mass and put columns of elements together that shared physical and chemical properties. He left blank areas for unknown elements whenever there was a large gap in atomic mass between two elements. He predicted the undiscovered elements’ properties, and when they were discovered they fit perfectly in the gaps. In 1864, Meyer published his own periodic table, unknown to Mendeleev. Meyer’s table consisted of 28 elements, classified by valence electrons. Unlike Mendeleev, Meyer did not predict new elements. English chemist, Mosley, “fixed” Mendeleev’s mistake by arranging elements by increasing atomic number instead of increasing atomic mass. He’s credited for developing the modern periodic table as well as forming periodic law, which states that when elements are arranged by increasing atomic number, there is a repeating pattern of their physical and chemical properties. According to periodic law, elements that are in the same group have the same number of valence...

Periodic Table 4 Chem

...The periodic table is a table in which all of the known elements are listed. The table arranges the elements in order of increasing proton number to show the similarities of chemical elements. Therefore elements with structural similarities & atomic number are placed together. These elements can be placed into two different categories, metals & non-metals. These elements can then be sub divided into 4 groups; Alkali, non-metals, transition & inner-transitions. If read horizontally the size of the atoms increases from metals to non-metals, yet when read vertically, all of the elements in the same group have the same number of electrons, which means they all behave in the same manner. The first man to describe the periodic table was Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev, whom was interested in chemistry. Mendeleev was determine to prove that elements in fact followed certain patterns. Mendeleev used the properties of the 57 known elements to group them. He used the first version of the periodic table to place elements where they seemed to belong. He also left blank spaces in the appropriate squares. After the elements had been laid out he was able to, in detail, predict the chemical & physical tendencies of the elements. Hydrogen didn’t fit into his pattern so he put it in a box of it’s own. A new row was started each time an element was discovered with properties similar to those in the first row. When read top to bottom there are various similarities to be found in the table...

...Diversity: Awareness and Opportunities at Appling County High Tonya D. Adams Western Governors University A. Introduction Appling County High School is a well-known high school, located in rural Southeast Georgia. The sound curriculum is challenging as well as the heart of education and requires the integration of multiple learning outcomes. The school has e enrolled students and 61 faculty members. In recent years the demographics have become more economically diverse, to which has led to an increase of challenges for the entire community as well as those in the education system. A1. Local Demographics One major demographic change we see occurring in the U.S. as well as here at ACHS is the gender of teachers is predominately female. I can recall just a handful of male teachers during my years while enrolled in the public school system. During 2011-2012, 76 percent of public school teachers were female. This makes me wonder where all the men are. I suppose as females we tend to be more of the “motherly” type and have the ability as well as necessary skills to cope with being around children at least 8 hours each day. Perhaps men can earn a larger salary by working in other fields and not having the constant reminder of being a parent while at work. In addition to having more female teachers or educators, we also have an increase in the number of students who speak another language in addition to English. The number of refugees moving into the United States...
