We will examine the arrangement of the periodic table and the connections between electron configurations and reactivity.
We will also discuss explore the regular and repeating trends in the properties of the elements.
This is a big part of why big atoms fall apart (uranium, plutonium,…).
Unfortunately, only “real” particles can be measured. We can observe gluons by introducing enough energy that they don’t have to rely on clerical errors to exist (I’m talking about particle accelerators here).
Honors Chemistry is designed for students who have demonstrated strong ability in previous science courses.
