How many valence electrons it has relative to the other elements in its row (which obviously has other implications which I won't get into). Each row has a specific amount of rings. Row 1 has 1 ring which can hold 2 electrons, thus hydrogen is in the first column with 1 electron in that valence ring and helium with 2 (a full ring). Rows 2 and 3 elements have 2 and 3 ring respectively and each of those rings can hold 8 electrons, thus 8 elements in each row with each successive element having 1 greater electron in that ring (their valence ring) than the previous element. Row 4 has elements which have all the previous rings filled but also start to fill the fourth ring (their valence ring) which now has 18 electrons it can hold. You see where I'm going with this...

The horizontal lines of the periodic table represent the number of proton shells the element has.

A horizontal row of elements is called periods

Yes, the periods are the horizontal rows in the periodic table. They shows the number of energy levels of an element. For example, an element in the period 2 has 2 energy levels.

Each element on the periodic table has a unique position. The position of a particular element can be given by specifying the Number of Row & Column. For example. He 1 Row and 18 Column or in crude terms of periodic table 1 Period and 18th Group. Similarly other elements.

Symbols represent name of the element. They signify the position of element in periodic table.

Periodic table can be used to sketch an element. Its configuration can be assumed from its position.

Periods are the horizontal rows on the periodic table. Cu is in the 4th row. Therefore, copper is in period 4 on the periodic table.

On the Periodic Table, a Period is one of the horizontal rows. If an element is last in it's period, then it's on the right hand side of the Periodic Table. There is an inert gas at the end of every Period.

The number of proton corresponds to the atomic number of the element and determines the position of the element on the modern periodic table.

The valence electron and number of shells determines the position. Considering these parameters they can be located in periodic table

The periodic table is made up of 7 periods, which are horizontal rows and correspond to the highest energy level orbital that an element naturally possesses.
