New Periodic Table
« on: July 20, 2005, 04:02:12 PM »
Some guy made a new periodic table.  I'm not exactly sure why or how it is better than the current one though.

looks pretty stupid to me.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Circular and spiral periodic tables have been done before.  While they're fun to look at and can display relations between the elements visually, they're not useful overall because no one reads in a spiral or circle.  I like having my information arranged in a convenient left-to-right grid.

That is really intresting. Made me chuckle a little and I'm relatively new to chemistry.

Good spoof on the science vs religion debates.

An odd topic if I may. One of these below that I see around my college. I can't seem to get one myself though. Any ideas whether I can get one? How? Where? So many questions, but any help would be appreciated :)

I have a copy of the book that has these pictures in it.  It doesn't have the table formatted as you showed (with pictures in each square), rather the elements are spread over several pages with the pictures.  The book is part of the LIFE Science Library series.

Matter.  By Ralph E. Lapp and the editors of LIFE.  LIFE Science Library, 1965.

I believe I have seen it hanging in the lab at my Uni back in eighties, so it is an old thing - but I can be wrong.

What about asking at Time Life directly?

I may be a bit biased, but I think that the table we have here at the forums is pretty danged good.  ;)  If you need more information about how to print it out, or permission to make some modifications, feel free to PM me.

I think its a poster from 1987 iirc. We've been ogling the copies in college because of the format ;D As far as I've been told, it's difficult to get directly through Time Life.

Jdurg, of course you're biased (with good reason) ;D
