Chemistry Periodic Table Celebration

Chem 3 Per Table Celebration 1
Chemistry and honors chemistry students celebrated the addition of four new superheavy elements to the periodic table with a cupcake periodic table that showed the newly completed 7th period. The elements, atomic numbers 113, 115, 117, and 118 are highly unstable, existing for only microseconds before breaking down into other elements – much like the cupcake periodic table! During class, the students completed their study of artificial transmutations by writing nuclear equations research teams from the United States, Russia and Japan used in synthesizing the elements.
