Chapter Overview

The origin of the periodic table came about as Mendeleev and other scientists attempted to organize elements that displayed similarities in chemical reactivity. The modern periodic table is arranged by increasing atomic number and is organized into periods and groups. Electron configurations help to explain why the table has the exact form that it does. Periodic trends are systematic variations in properties of elements and include, atomic radius, ionization energy, ionic radius, and electronegativity.
