Periodic Table

The Periodic Table of Elements is a one stop shop to let you know all of the vital information about every known element on Earth.  It tells you the names and chemical symbols of all of the elements, how many electrons each element has (and therefore how many protons as this is the same as electrons) and how many electron shells each atom has.  It tells you each element’s atomic weight and whether it is a metal or a non-metal.  Knowledge of the Periodic Table is essential for understanding not only chemistry but also all of the other sciences.
