The periodic table lies at the foundation of chemistry. By listing each element in rows, we can understand the qualities and properties of all known atoms. However, this traditional illustration of the elements in the form of a table has its drawbacks. It fails to express many important concepts, such as the ‘up’ and ‘down’ electron spin, the electron configuration, and orbital types (S, P, D and F).
In this course, you will learn a 2D geometric version of the Periodic Table, called Periodic Triangles. Gain a clear explanation of each atom, detailing both orbital types, spin, the Pauli Exclusion- and Aufbau Principle, as well as exposing the various anomalies that appear in the electron configuration. This triangular model of the Periodic Table will guide you through the first 88 atoms, in a simple-to-understand way, perfect to elevate your knowledge of chemistry and atomic physics.
