Overview

All atoms (with the exception of hydrogen atoms) have more than one electron. The quantize energy levels of electrons with many electrons are presented in a diagram. The Periodic Table of the Elements is introduced. This is a table that is fundamental to the nature of atoms and plays a central role in chemistry. Using the energy level diagram the Periodic Table is explained. In the course of the explanation, there is a systematic description of some of the properties of atoms. For example: Why does table salt dissolve in water but hydrocarbons (oil) donAÆt? Why do some solids, like copper, conduct electricity, but other solids, like sulfur, do not?
