Periodic Trends and the Properties of Elements: The Alkaline Earth Metals—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

The Periodic Table is the most recognizable symbol of chemistry and a valuable tool for scientists to classify the elements and explain and predict their properties, which give rise to periodic trends. With the Periodic Trends and the Properties of Elements: The Alkaline Earth Metals—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, identify periodic trends in alkaline earth metals by comparing metal activity within a group and across a period and studying the solubility of various compounds to identify an unknown alkaline earth metal.
