The front side of each card shows a full-size, photographic image of the element, while the back gives scientific information including atomic weight, density, melting and boiling point, valence, and the percent of the element found in the universe, in the Earth's crust, in oceans, and in humans. Graphics show melting/boiling points, density, electron configuration, and atomic radius. A fascinating fact about the element, as well as the date of its discovery, is also included.

    A wealth of information in 126 cards, The Photographic Card Deck

    A wealth of information in 126 cards, The Photographic Card Deck of the Elements is a necessity for any person that loves (or hates) science. The front of each card contains its element's atomic number, atomic weight, atomic symbol and name, as well as beautiful imagery associated with the element. On the back of the card, you can find a plethora of valuable information from density and melting/boiling points to electron shells and atomic radius. Theodore Gray also includes interesting facts about each of the 118 elements, helping the reader to relate the atom to something a little bit more tangible. I would venture to say that you probably don't know much about neodymium, but Gray helps us understand why it is important to us -
    "Discovered 1885 in Austria




    Neodymium-iron-boron alloys are the basis for the most powerful permanent magnets, used in headphones, disk drives, and motors, and commonly known as neodymium magnets or rare earth magnets."




    Without this element, your computer would not be able to store information for your use! These reference cards will be worth their weight in gold for any high school or college student and I highly recommend it for any person that loves to learn! The Photographic Card Deck of the Elements Flashcards: With Big Beautiful Photographs of All 118 Elements in the Periodic Table eliminates the time it takes to pile through books and webpages by placing relevant technical and usage information on easy and fun to read reference cards.
