The Periodic Table

The periodic table is a chart containing information about
the atoms that make up all matter.
An element is a substance made up of only one type of
atom.
The atomic number of an atom is equal to the number of
protons in its nucleus.
The number of electrons surrounding the nucleus of an
atom is equal to the number of protons in its nucleus.
Different atoms of the same element can have a different
number of neutrons.
Atoms of the same element with different numbers of
neutrons are called “isotopes” of that element.
The atomic mass of an element is the average mass of the
different isotopes of the element.
The atoms in the periodic table are arranged to show
characteristics and relationships between atoms and
groups of atoms.
