Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe

By Theodore Gray

The Elements has turn into a global sensation, with over 1000000 copies in-print worldwide

The highly-anticipated paperback variation of The Elements is ultimately available.

An eye-opening, unique choice of beautiful, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 parts within the periodic table. 

The components are what we, and every thing round us, are made up of. yet what percentage parts has someone really obvious in natural, uncombined form? The Elements provides this infrequent chance. in accordance with seven years of study and images, the photographs during this e-book make up the main entire, and visually arresting, illustration to be had to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. prepared so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one point is represented through a range that features a lovely, full-page, full-color picture that almost all heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab fuel to a stunning light blue liquid. 

Also integrated are interesting proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to information at the homes of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling element, valence, electronegativity, and the yr and site within which it used to be chanced on. a number of extra pictures convey each one aspect in just a little altered kinds or as utilized in quite a few sensible methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues seems to be on each one web page in addition to a density scale that runs alongside the bottom. 

Packed with fascinating info, this mixture of reliable technology and gorgeous creative pictures is the precise reward e-book for each sentient creature within the universe.

Includes a tear-out poster of Theodore Gray's iconic Photographic Periodic Table!

For parts which are mostly gasoline or liquid, this is often the crystal shape they tackle after they are cooled sufficient to freeze good. 3500 CRYSTAL constitution The crystal constitution diagram exhibits the 2500 1500 4d 2000 4f while atoms of a given point are heated to very excessive temperatures, they emit gentle of attribute wavelengths, or colours, which correspond to the diversities in power degrees among their electron orbitals. This diagram exhibits the colours of those traces, each such as a specific energylevel distinction, prepared right into a spectrum from the hardly obvious pink on the best to the approximately ultraviolet on the backside. a thousand 500 zero kingdom of subject Atomic Emission Spectrum 3p 3s 2p 1s 2s This temperature scale in levels Celsius indicates the diversity of temperatures over which the point is good, liquid, or gasoline. The boundary among strong and liquid is the melting element, whereas the boundary among liquid and fuel is the boiling element. Twist the pages of the booklet to unfold the sides of the pages out, and you may see a graph of the melting and boiling issues, which exhibits very said tendencies around the periodic desk.

Hydrogen is the lightest of all of the gases—lighter even than helium—and less expensive, which money owed for its ill-advised use in early airships reminiscent of the Hindenburg. you might have heard how good that went, although in equity the folk died simply because they fell, now not simply because they have been burned through the hydrogen, which in many ways is much less harmful to have in a motor vehicle than, say, gas. Hydrogen is the main ample aspect, the lightest, and the main cherished by means of physicists simply because, with just one proton and one electron, their beautiful quantum mechanical formulation really paintings precisely on it. when you get to helium with protons and electrons, the physicists pretty well throw up their arms and permit the chemists have it.
