tell me ur awnser. thx. =zoegurll
Elements that are the same what have a tendency to have very similar chemical properties due to periodic trends?
On the periodic table, there are groups or families (columns). Each group contains elements that have similar chemical and physical properties. So to find a similar element, just look to other elements in the same group. For example, if you are looking for elements similar to Helium, you would just have to look to the elements further down the group such as Neon, Argon, etc.
Which pair of elements is more likely to have similar properties two elements in the same group or two elements in the same period?
A pair of elements in the same group are more likely to have similar properties. This is why groups are also called families. In the main group elements, groups 1,2, 13-18, the elements in a group have the same numbers of valence electrons in their outermost energy levels. This accounts for the fact that they behave in a similar matter in chemical reactions.
Because they are closely related elements which have similar properties. They have the same number of valence electrons which gives them very similar chemical properties. For example, you, your sibling (if any) and your parents comprise a family because your genes or chemical composition is very similar when compared to other families. You are closely related. In the same way, the elements in a family are very closely related.
Does the periodic table arrange the elements so that elements in the same row or elements in the same column have similar chemical properties?
The elements in the periodic table are arranged so that there is an increase from left to right (such as atomic radius) and from up to down (such as atomic weight). The elements that have somehow similar properties (not always, mind you) are arranged in families (or columns, as you unappropriately name them). Hope this is useful.
The elements are arranged in horizontal rows and vertical columns, the rows are called periods and the columns are called groups or families. All the elements of the same group have similar chemical and physical properties. The periods all show a similar pattern, with metallic elements on the left transitioning to nonmetallic elements on the right of the periodic table.
