Listen, science was never my strong point in school but something about chemical reactions and their properties just seemed cool to me.
It's National Periodic Table Day , and I'm sure many of us do not know enough about the periodic table. So, let me give all of us a little lesson on why it's important.
On this day a couple hundred years ago, a man by the name of John Newlands created and published one of the first table of elements. The elements were to be divided into 11 groups based on the " Law of Octaves ". The periodic table started out with 56 elements and the current modern table has 118 elements. The table provides all the information need to balance harmful chemical reactions at a glance.
Of course one can not learn something new unless it's put into a song. So, check out this rap about the periodic table. It is low-key better than some of the music I have been hearing lately. Let me know what you think!
