Last Weeks Answer Was..... CARBON!
Yep, the element was Carbon. It is element #6 on the table if you are ordering via atomic number, the number of protons in an atom. The periodic table above is not the best one, but it is an SVG graphic (new type of graphic, based off of lines of text). It does not list the atomic number, but oh well. I'll do.
So I will ask all of you this week four questions:
- Why is Carbon...Carbon? I am asking about why it can bind so well together, and what it is called when the 2s and 2p paths combine together, creating many, many different types of bonds.
- What is the last stable element on the board? At some point in the board, all other elements beyond this element is unstable, and is indeed radioactive. I will give you a hint, it is in the Carbon family as well. Yes, the Carbon family is a very special family indeed.
- What is an isotope? Name an isotope.
- Why is Hydrogen 1 (H - 1) so unique?
See what you can do to answer these questions. As before, I encourage you to please not refer to online internet sites for your information, as this is just something meant to be for fun, and not to truly test you. You don't have to try to answer them all unless you desire to.
So, go ahead and take a stab at these questions in the comments below! Try to number the questions that you are trying to answer.
