Study Notes

Groups in Chemistry

  • A group is a vertical column in the periodic table, consisting of elements that exhibit similar chemical and physical properties due to the same number of electrons in their outermost energy level.

Periodic Table Groups

  • There are 18 numbered groups in the periodic table.

Similar Characteristics

  • Elements in the same group have similar characteristics because they have the same number of electrons in their outermost energy level, resulting in similar chemical reactivity.

Modern Numbering System

  • The modern numbering system for groups in the periodic table is based on the number of electrons in the outermost energy level, ranging from 1 (alkali metals) to 18 (noble gases).

Replacement of Old System

  • The modern numbering system replaced the old system, which used Roman numerals (I-VIII) and letters (A, B) to label groups.

Test your knowledge of the periodic table with this quiz on chemical groups and families. Explore the similarities in physical and chemical properties of elements in each group and enhance your understanding of their electron configurations and core charges.
