Periodic table
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Periodic Table of Elements contains the currently identified chemical elements arranged based on their chemical properties. Elements have certain properties and tendencies to react that were found to repeat periodically when elements of increasing atomic masses were compared.
Each cell of the table contains a different element. The cells of most periodic tables contain the name and symbol of each element, the atomic number (the number of protons), and the atomic weight (average number of protons + neutrons). Some periodic tables will contain other information, such as the electron shell configuration of each element, or their state at room temperature (liquid, gas, or solid).
The electron configurations of atoms is the primarily determinant of their chemical reactivity, and particularly the outershell (or "valence") electrons. The elements in the periodic table are arranged into rows (known as groups or families) and columns (known as periods) based on how many shells of electron the atoms possess, and the number of electron in outershell, respectively.

State at standard temperature and pressure
 those with atomic number in red are gases
 those with atomic number in blue are liquids
 those with atomic number in black are solid
Natural occurrence
 those with solid borders have isotopes that are older than the Earth (Primordial elements)
 those with dashed borders naturally arise from decay of other chemical elements and have no isotopes older than the earth
 those with dotted borders are made artificially (Synthetic elements)
 those without borders have not been discovered yet
Predictive Equation
Jeanclaude Perez has put forth a mathematical model of the periodical table wherein a simple equation generates and predicts the structure of the table of Mendeleev. Perez asserts this equation illustrates a law that unifies all the elements of nature.[1]
 The equation predicts the number of elements of any layer of period "p" in the table according to the only value of this period "p". Beyond this mathematical modeling of the periodic table of the Elements,
 The equation underlines, in its formulation, the " trace" of the 4 fundamental quantum Numbers.
 The model predicts the structure of the hypothetical extensions of the table of Mendeleev towards possible Elements (real) unknown which would be located beyond the last known radioactive Elements.
 The model also makes it possible to imagine an infinity of other Elements (virtual) which one could however predict positioning towards the low layers of the table, like their quantum properties.
To summarize, IF:
c(p) a horizontal layer of elements of the table of Mendeleev, "p" the period associated with this c(p) layer such as p = [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 … ], Int(v) the whole part of the numerical value "v". exp: if v=2.35,then Int(2.35)=2.
THEN: one obtains c(p), the number of elements contained in the c(p) layer of order p, by applying the formula:
c(p) = 2 [ Int ( (p+2) / 2 ) ]*2
Examples :
If p=1 then c(1)=2 If p=2 then c(2)=8 If p=3 then c(3)=8 If p=4 then c(4)=18 If p=5 then c(5)=18 If p=6 then c(6)=32 If p=7 then c(7)=32 If p=8 then c(8)=50 If p=9 then c(9)=50 …/… If p=16 then c(16)=162
To conclude :
 The periodic table of the Elements is modelizable. It is structured by a numerical structure of whole numbers.
 This structure is deterministic and predictive, then, for any period p, it can be calculated by applying "the Perez's generic equation of Mendeleev".
 The generic equation is completely controled by the four quantum Numbers.
 This generic equation makes it possible to check the regularity of the common table of Mendeleev, but it can also "predict" and anticipate the existence of hypothetical Eléments now unknown, of which it makes it possible to determine the quantum properties, then electronic and chemical hypothetical properties.[2]
