Group and period of the element Iodine. Element with atomic number 87. Element in group 5 period 6. _____________________________________Man that put together the first Periodic Table. ________________________________The only element under the staircase that is not a metalloid. _________________________The number of gases on the Periodic Table. _____________________________________The element named after the man that put the first P.T. together _______________________Two elements next to each other that have decreasing atomic masses. _____________________The four states of matter are ________, __________, ________, and ____.A particle that has a positive charge is called a ________________.A particle that has a negative charge is called a _____________.A particle with a neutral charge is called a ______________.How many electrons are in the element hydrogen? ______How many protons are in the element bromine (Br)? _____Scavenger Hunt Part 2: TriviaUse the internet to help you find these facts: An element may be used more than once. used to galvanize iron alloyed with copper to make bronze alloyed with copper to make brass an oxide that gives Mars its red color most reactive nonmetal most abundant element in the universe makes up almost 80% of air two most abundant elements in the earth's crust most abundant metal in the earth's crust first discovered in light coming from the sun essential for healthy bones and teeth two main elements in fertilizers poisoning from this element causes brain damage (like the "Mad Hatter") element used extensively in paints until harmful side effects were discovered four most abundant elements in the human body the gas used in the Hinderburgnoble gas in rocks and soils which can seep into houses through basements and become trapped, risking lung cancer used to kill bacteria in most public water supplies in the U.S.Scavenger Hunt Part 3: Short AnswerWhat do you think is the most “dangerous” element, and why?What did you eat for dinner last night? Break that food down into the chemical components that it contains (Use the internet to find out what elements are in that food!) OPTIONAL EXTRA CREDIT!!!Scavenger Hunt Part 4 Write out A-Z on your paper. Use the clues to figure out which elements are being described! Use the internet to research some of these facts for help. a ) A , B and C belong to a family, the members of which are all gases. A is commonly used in advertising signs, B was first discovered on the sun, and C is the largest element in the family.b) D, E and F are members of a family containing both gases and solid elements. D is in the ATP molecule. E is a major constituent in the atmosphere and F is a dangerous poison and metalloid.c) G, H and I belong to a family of very active metals all of which react very violently with water. G is a member of of the first period to contain 18 elements and H has the highest ionization energy of these elements. I has the lowest ionization energy of these elements.d) J, K and L belong to the same family and are all metals. A compound of J is a major component of bones and teeth, K is commonly used in flash bulbs and L is a radioactive element discovered by marie curie.e) M is a gas and has some properties similar to elements in groups 1 and 7. it is unique in this respect.f) N, O and P are halogens. N is a liquid, O is a non-radioactive solid and P is the most chemically reactive element.g) Q, R, S and T are in different families but in the same period. Q is a gas used for water purification, R is a yellow non-metallic solid, S is a metalloid used in semiconductors and T is a metal of low density used in aircraft construction. h) U, V, W and X are all transition elements. U is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity and is commonly used in wiring and cookware. V is the only metal that is a liquid at room temperature and W is produced in the largest quantity and X is used in expensive jewelry. i) Y and Z are actinides. Y is a fuel for power reactors and Z is named for the creator of the periodic table. ................
