Periodic Trend Graphing Activity

The Periodic Law states that properties of the elements vary in a regularly repeating fashion with the atomic numbers. We will be investigating these patterns by graphing various properties of the elements.

Each person will graph one of the following properties of the elements:
boiling point melting point density
atomic volume first ionization potential atomic radius
most stable oxidation state covalent radius specific heat
electronegativity heat of vaporization heat of fusion
electrical conductivity thermal conductivity

If you are on-line, you can obtain a table of all this data and more by clicking here.

Possible alternate properties (by instructor permission only): years since discovery, half-life of most stable isotope, half-life of least stable isotope, neutron:proton ratio, number of letters in the name, etc
