Download E-books Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe PDF

By Theodore Gray

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

The highly-anticipated paperback version of The Elements is eventually available.

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

The parts are what we, and every little thing round us, are made from. yet what percentage parts has a person really obvious in natural, uncombined form? The Elements provides this infrequent chance. in response to seven years of analysis and images, the images during this e-book make up the main whole, and visually arresting, illustration to be had to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. equipped so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one point is represented by way of a range that features a wonderful, full-page, full-color photo 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 incorporated are attention-grabbing evidence, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to information at the houses of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling aspect, valence, electronegativity, and the yr and site within which it used to be came across. a number of extra pictures express each one point in a bit altered varieties or as utilized in a variety of functional 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 looks on every one web page in addition to a density scale that runs alongside the bottom. 

Packed with fascinating info, this mix of strong technological know-how and wonderful creative pictures is the proper reward e-book for each sentient creature within the universe.

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

Fluorine is one of the such a lot reactive of all of the parts. Blow a circulate of fluorine gasoline at nearly whatever, and it'll burst into flame. that incorporates issues no longer generally considered flammable, resembling glass. curiously, the extra reactive a component is, the extra strong are its compounds. after we say fluorine is very reactive, we suggest that a huge quantity of power is published whilst it combines with different components. The ensuing compounds are very solid as the similar great quantity of power has to be placed again in that will tear them aside. This strength needs to be provided by way of a few yet-more-reactive substance, of which, relating to fluorine, there are useful few. the main recognized hugely strong fluorine compound is Teflon, which was once came upon relatively accidentally. such a lot of vital chemical substances were came upon accidentally that one has to ask yourself what a number of bumblers chemists are. or perhaps they're simply tremendously reliable at recognizing serendipity while it ruins their day. Teflon was once found while its unforeseen formation thoroughly ruined an try to create the 1st chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, that have now been banned as ozone-depleting menaces. no longer a foul alternate, I’d say. Teflon is sort of thoroughly proof against chemical assault, and coincidentally additionally very slippery, which makes it important in every thing from nonstick pans to acidstorage bottles. Fluorine is necessary essentially as a result of good compounds it types, whereas neon varieties no strong compounds whatever.
