A Rich Resource
Consider for a moment everything that surrounds you, a chair, a telephone, even the air you breathe. All of these things, including ourselves, are made from combinations of chemical elements.
The elements which make up our physical world are examined in this rich and inspiring resource, to be used for research or simply to satisfy your curiosity. Find out about gases such as nitrogen and oxygen without which we could not live, discover the history behind metals such as gold and platinum which we desire so much.
With detailed scientific information provided by our expert consultants, the CD-ROM includes a range of sound, video and animation features to bring the table to life.
History and Principles
Step through related information screens covering details such as the history of an element, who discovered it and the scientific principles or simple accidents that led to its discovery.
Graphs and Tables
Sections of the periodic table can be selected and color coded to visualize trends. Form comparisons by plotting graphs and tables of the material you have gathered.
The Interactive Periodic Table on CD-ROM provides extensive scientific data on the elements, with information about where they are found and their applications. Discover the properties of each element and record figures such as melting and boiling points. Properties covered include name, symbol, atomic number and mass, electronic configuration, ionization energies, ionic radii, oxidation states and much more.
The Interactive Periodic Table features a wide range of multimedia sources from animated physical structures and flame tests, to photographs which help to illustrate the atomic, physical and chemical properties of the elements. The CD-ROM also includes carefully selected video footage from the TV program "The Elements." Audio excerpts include Liverpool poet Roger McGough reciting his poems about the elements and a recording of Tom Lehrer's famous song.
