Periodic table of the elements
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What information can i find on the periodic table of the elements and what does it mean
2. Relevant equations What is anything.
3. The attempt at a solution Atomic symbol, the big letter, for the element abervation. The elements name, for the elements name. Atomic number, in the corner, tells elements number

There is more information in the table than that, of course. Think about "groups" and "periods".

One of the unifying themes in chemistry is periodicity. There are patterns EVERYWHERE in the periodic table. You can work out [i]trends[.i] of many things, such as:
First ionization energy
reaction with water
reaction with chlorides
and much much more. You can also work out the electronic structure (talking about orbitals here, but works for the 'simpler' form too) from it's group and period.
