Description - Periodic Table by DK
The perfect guide to all 118 elements in the periodic table
"Did you know the melting point of gallium is so low that it will melt in your hand because of your body heat? Or that four new man-made elements were officially named as recently as 2016?
Packed with striking new photography, Eyewitness Periodic Table walks you through all 118 elements in the periodic table. From the history of when the periodic table was first created to the scientific classification of the elements into groups, Eyewitness Periodic Table is an exhaustive guide to everything elemental.
The book details what elements are and explains what lies at the core of each one of them. It then delves into the origin of every element (both naturally occurring and synthetic), where they are found, and how they are used. Explore elements such as carbon and oxygen and learn why they are essential to our survival. See how precious gold protects astronauts in space, and why the metal mercury can be both a solid and a liquid.
Filled with clear, easy to understand facts, Eyewitness Periodic Table is an essential addition to every budding scientist's book shelf. Also included is a pull-out poster for easy reference, perfect for the bedroom or classroom. "
