What do you mean by classification of elements?
Also asked, what are the classification of elements in the periodic table?
The periodic table – classification of elements. Definitions of groups, periods, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, halogens, and noble gases. How metals, non-metals, and metalloids can be identified by the position on the periodic table. Created by Jay.
Subsequently, question is, what are the 2 types of elements? These are further split into groups:
- Main group metals. Group one: alkaline metals (purple) Group two: alkaline earth metals (dark blue)
- Transition metals. Group 4 – 11: Transition metals (light blue)
- F Block metals (at the bottom) Lanthanide series (pink)
In this way, what is a classification?
A classification is a division or category in a system which divides things into groups or types. The government uses a classification system that includes both race and ethnicity.
How many types of elements are there?
There are more than 109 different types of atom – one for each element. Differences between the atoms give the elements their different chemical properties. In 2001, there were 115 known elements. However, those above 109 are highly unstable and have been made in only tiny quantities.
