Electronic Configuration of the Elements

"Russian chemist Dmitry Mendeleyev proposed the periodic table of elements, which grouped elements in rows and columns by shared chemical properties. Each element received an atomic number corresponding to its atomic weight. Many elements were unknown in the middle of the 19th century when Mendeleyev made the configuration; subsequent discoveries have led to the completion of the table."....Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

Chemistry and Physics:.any substance that cannot be separated into different substances except by nuclear.disintegration. Elements in the Periodic Table.(see 'Periodic Table of the Elements' in an encyclopedia and under 'element' in a dictionary, see the Chemical Element Table in an encyclopedia for a list of these elements).are ranked by atomic number, as determined by the specific number of protons an element may have. Any more than 100 protons and their combined repulsive forces would disintegrate the atom. The elements exhibit designed structure

A single element can exist as several isotopes. Each element has a specific number of protons. Russian born physicist George Gamow believes that all elements came into existence at the same time the Universe did. Cosmologist Fred Hoyle at Cambridge University, believes to the contrary that the elements became synthesized in stars, but the fact that there is far too much deuterium in the Universe, tends to dispute that part of Hoyle's theory
Mathematics: 1) a member of a set; 2) a point, line or plane; 3) a part of a geometric configuration, such as an angle in a triangle 4) the generatrix of a geometric figure 5) any of the terms in the rectangular array of terms that constitute a matrix or determinant; a substance composed of atoms having an identical number of protons in each nucleus. Elements cannot be reduced to simpler substances by normal chemical means; one of four substances, earth, air, fire or water, formerly regarded as a fundamental constituent of the universe
