Elements:

We've got eighteen elements to choose from. Why start with 18? We only have eighteen, because the rules for the first eighteen elements are very straightforward:
(1) Electrons fit nicely into three shells. Remember that the shells are the places you will find electrons as they spin around the nucleus.
(2) These elements make up most of the matter in the Universe.
(3) It's a lot easier to remember facts about 18 elements than over 100 elements.

Element 1: Hydrogen
Element 2: Helium
Element 3: Lithium
Element 4: Beryllium
Element 5: Boron
Element 6: Carbon
Element 7: Nitrogen
Element 8: Oxygen
Element 9: Fluorine

Element 10: Neon
Element 11: Sodium
Element 12: Magnesium
Element 13: Aluminum
Element 14: Silicon
Element 15: Phosphorus
Element 16: Sulfur
Element 17: Chlorine
Element 18: Argon

Who are we kidding? We know you want information on more than eighteen elements. We've added the next 18 elements from the fourth period (row) of the periodic table. You need to remember that this is the first row with transition elements. The transition metals have electron configurations that are a little different from the first 18 elements. Make sure you understand the first 18 before you move on to this set.

Element 19: Potassium
Element 20: Calcium
Element 21: Scandium
Element 22: Titanium
Element 23: Vanadium
Element 24: Chromium
Element 25: Manganese
Element 26: Iron
Element 27: Cobalt

Element 28: Nickel
Element 29: Copper
Element 30: Zinc
Element 31: Galium
Element 32: Germanium
Element 33: Arsenic
Element 34: Selenium
Element 35: Bromine
Element 36: Krypton
