  • Q2
    What was the order of Mendeleev's periodic table?
    atomic number
    atomic weight
    atomic mass
    electron number
    30s
  • Q3
    How did Mendeleev arrange his elements?
    He left gaps for undiscovered elements and he arranged elements due to their similar chemical properties

  • Q4
    What is an isotope?
    an isotope has the same mass number but different atomic number
    an isotope is a version of an element with the same atomic number so the same number of protons and electrons but a different mass number because of a different number of neutrons
