3Introduction to Terminologies GroupsPeriodsPeriodic table: It is the tabular display of chemical elements.Group: A group or afamily is a vertical column in the periodic tablePeriod : The horizontal row in a periodic table is called a period.
4Details in the Periodic Table Atomic Number= number of electrons= number of protonsAtomic Mass= number of (protons + neutrons)
5Groups18 groups in standard periodic table, numbered from 1 to 18, as per IUPAC standards.Elements in a group have similar configurations of the outermost shells, leading to similar properties.
7Periods There are 7 periods in the table. Elements of the same period have the same number of electron shells.Within each group across a period, the number of electrons and protons increases, leading to increase in atomic number.Elements within the same period do not generally show similarity in properties, except d-block and f-block (lanthanides) elements.
8Trends in the Periodic Table Trends occur due to the electronic configurations of elements.Across a period, electrons of the outermost shell, experience increased nuclear attraction due to increase in atomic number.Down a group, nuclear attraction decreases due to “shielding effect”.
10Classification of Elements in Periodic Table Classification depends on the difference in physical and chemical properties of elements:Metals (yellow )Nonmetals (green)Metalloids (purple)
11Properties of Metals Shiny solids at room temperature, except mercury. Good conductor of both heat and electricity.High melting point and density.Shiny and lustrous.Ductile and malleable.Metals can be alloyed.
12Properties of Nonmetals Insulators of heat and electricity.Dull surface.Low density, compared to metals.Low melting temperatures.Brittle solids
13Element of the UP – Copper..!!! Symbol – Cu, from the Latin word cuprumAtomic number – 29Classification – Transition MetalAppearance – Reddish, with a bright metallic lusterPosition in the Periodic table: Group 11 and Period 4.Melting Point: 1356 K (1981 oF)
14Alloys of Copper Brass – Cu and Zn Red Brass/Gunmetal – Cu, Zn and Sn Phosphor Bronze/Bronze – Cu and SnAluminum Bronze – Cu and AlSilicon Bronze – Cu and SiMonel – Ni and Cu
