Periodic Table & Elements

Periodic Table & ElementsPeriodic Table & Elements, The periodic table of the elements of the family just got a little bigger, adding two packets of dark, short-lived joy. For now, they are affectionately nicknamed elements 114 and 116 – the number of protons in their nuclei. There are elements that will remain in its class among laboratory scientists to make the elements 114 and 116 to smash atoms together.

Even then, they disintegrate quickly. The atoms of 114 there for a few seconds, and 116 decays in less than a second. However, they have completely undermined all that memorizing minute he made in his chemistry class at school.

The items were recently approved by an international group of chemists and physicists. The Associated Press reports that when the name, the new elements is likely to end with “io”, such as calcium, plutonium or curium. Do not cling to the periodic table is now. The powerful international committee established to discuss the elements 113 and 115 soon. And the Associated Press reports that the table of the elements change every few years.

That is worrisome to some, Ken Moody of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory told the AP. The chemical, which is part of the discovery team of the new evidence, said he does not talk about what he does for a living at parties because people generally do not invite him back. “
