How the periodic table came to be
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the American Chemical Society’s Reactions series and features a brief history of the periodic table.
Most people probably don’t remember a time when the periodic table wasn’t proudly displayed in all science classrooms, but the truth is that the key science chart took many years to develop.
Now, the finished product displays the chemical elements arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and chemical properties, paving the way for chemistry breakthroughs for years to come.
