A printable periodic table is an essential tool for students and chemists.
Atoms are the fundamental building blocks of all matter and are composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Because atoms are electrically neutral, the number of positively charged protons must be equal to the number of negatively charged electrons. Since neutrons do not affect the charge, the number of neutrons is not dependent on the number of protons and will vary even among atoms of the same element. The atomic number represented by the letter Z of an element is the number of protons in the nucleus of each atom of that element.

Colored Periodic Table To Print and Use This periodic table image can be downloaded to print or used as a desktop wallpaper. The periodic table of the chemical elements Print Also Mendeleev's table, periodic table of the elements or just periodic table is a tabular display of the chemical elements. This free periodic table wallpaper is available in png format.
The atomic number or proton number symbol Z of a chemical element is the number of protons found in the nucleus of every atom of that element. The atomic number uniquely identifies a chemical element. It is identical to the charge number of the nucleus.
The biennial review of atomic-weight determinations and other cognate data has resulted in changes for the standard atomic weights of 19 elements. The standard atomic weights of four elements have been revised based on recent determinations of isotopic abundances in natural terrestrial materials:. Comprehensive tables of recommended atomic-weight values for use in science, industry, and commerce began with F. In , the American Chemical Society appointed Clarke as a permanent one-man committee to report on a standard table of atomic weights for acceptance by the society, and he reported annually from until , when he asked to be relieved of this responsibility.
Since the standard unit of atomic mass has been one-twelfth the mass of an atom of the isotope carbon The atomic weight of helium is 4. Atomic weight is measured in atomic mass units amu , also called daltons. See below for a list of chemical elements and their atomic weights.
Click a column header, such as Name, to sort the table by that item. SEE Notes at the bottom of the Table. Clarke and H.
Allotropes Some elements exist in several different structural forms, called allotropes. Each allotrope has different physical properties. For more information on the Visual Elements image see the Uses and properties section below. Group A vertical column in the periodic table. Members of a group typically have similar properties and electron configurations in their outer shell. Period A horizontal row in the periodic table. The atomic number of each element increases by one, reading from left to right.
The table can also be reconfigured to include Lutetium Lu and Lawrencium Lr in the d-block if desired.
