The displayed elements are also color coded to easily differentiate amongst elements of different types. However, the standout feature of this app is the detailed view. All you have to do is click on any element in the table, and the app will display a truckload of information about its physical and atomic properties, such as oxidation states, specific heat, heat of vaporization, covalent radius, and much more. Sounds like something you (or your kids) can use for their Chemistry classes? Let’s find out more about Periodic Table.
Using The App To Learn About The Periodic Table Elements
Step 1: Akin to any other modern app, installing Periodic Table is a piece of cake. Once installed, you can straightaway launch the app and start using it. Here’s how Periodic Table looks like, when run for the first time:
Looks pretty dope, right? As seen above, Periodic Table displays all the constituent chemical elements of the table front and center, in the standard periodic table arrangement (periods and groups) that everyone is familiar with. The elements are color coded according to their types, and each element also has additional information (chemical symbol and atomic number) about it displayed. If you’d like to see even more details, bring up the settings charm from the bottom edge, and use the “Customize” option to change the information displayed (such as atomic weight and electron configuration).
Step 2: To find out detailed information about any member of the periodic table, simply click on it. Once you do that, the app will show a bunch of useful information about the selected element. Amongst the details that are displayed are physical properties (state, heat of fusion etc.), and atomic properties (e.g. electronegativity, atomic radius, ionization potential). In addition, the app also shows extra information like helpful links and illustrative images fetched from the web. Isn’t that great? Here’s a screengrab:
Periodic Table is a simple but extremely useful app for finding out all sorts of details about the chemical elements listed in the periodic table. It’s especially handy for those who study Chemistry. Try it out, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
