This book gives readers a comprehensive overview of the properties and uses of the radioactive element radium and its place on the periodic table.

The periodic law was developed independently by Dmitri Mendeleev and Lothar Meyer in 1869. Mendeleev's periodic table is an arrangement of the elements that group similar elements together. Mendeleev created the first periodic table and was shortly followed by Meyer. He left blank spaces for the undiscovered elements (atomic masses, element: 44, scandium; 68, gallium; 72, germanium; & 100, technetium) so that certain elements can be grouped together. However, Mendeleev had not predicted the noble gases, so no spots were left for them.

Each element within the periodic table has its own block. Within these blocks are identifying numbers and letters. The number on the very top is called the atomic number and it represents the number of protons in a single atom of the element. For the element helium (shown above) the atomic number is two. The letters in each block represent the atomic symbol. This is essentially an abbreviation of the elements name.

Describes the element radium, including the history of its discovery, its chemical composition, and the dangers posed by the element. Includes bibliographical references (pages 44-46) and index.

The periodic table arranged the elements to reflect Periodic Law, even though scientists at the time had no explanation for why properties followed a trend. Once the electronic structure of atoms was discovered and understood, it became apparent the reason characteristics occurred in intervals was because of the behavior of electron shells. Properties Affected by Periodic Law. The key properties that follow trends according to Periodic Law are atomic radius, ionic radius, ionization energy, electronegativity, and electron affinity.

Radium (Ra) was discovered in the ore pitchblende by the French chemists Marie and Pierre Curie and an assistant in 1898. It is a radioactive element, classified as an alkaline earth metal in the periodic table. It is found naturally in uranium and thorium ores, and when isolated, it is a slivery, lustrous, and soft metal. Radium is formed by the radioactive disintegration of uranium. Radiation from radium harms living cells, and overexposure to its rays can burn. Because cancer cells are more sensitive to radiation than normal cells, radium is used in the treatment of a few types of cancer. Radium was once used in the production of luminous paints that were applied to clock dials and other objects to make them glow in the dark, until its harmful effects became widely known. This book gives readers a comprehensive overview of the properties and uses of the radioactive element radium and its place on the periodic table.
