Google launches the new interactive periodic table

Google lancia la nuova tavola periodica interattiva thumbnail

Google Search added a fun and educational interactive periodic table. For those who do not know what it is, the periodic table lists the known chemical elements and summarizes their main characteristics (number of protons, ions and more).

Here is the definition of Wikipedia, which also tells the story of the scientists who built it in a few lines:

The periodic table of elements (or simply periodic table O Mendeleev’s table) is the scheme with which the chemical elements are ordered on the basis of their atomic number Z and the number of electrons present in the atomic orbitals s, p, d, f.

It is the first and most used version of the periodic table, conceived in 1869 by the Russian chemist Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleev and, independently, by the German chemist Julius Lothar Meyer; in the beginning it had numerous empty spaces for the elements foreseen by the theory, some of which would have been discovered only in the second half of the twentieth century.

The characteristics of Google’s interactive periodic table

It is possible to find it by searching on Google for “periodic table” and clicking on “Explore Elements”On the right side of the page, or by navigating directly. You will also be able to see the 3-dimensional models of all the elements, as well as a series of curious facts about the various substances.

For example, by clicking on the Thallium, it will be possible to discover that this particular element was used as a murder weapon in a story by Agatha Christie. This is a fun and less boring way to study a very important scientific subject like chemistry, often “Snubbed” by students because they were deemed useless or too heavy.

Google’s other updates for Assistant

This introduction is part of a series of innovations designed for Google Assistant, and designed to help families in the most disparate tasks. Feature updates are also included Family Bell.

Google is also adding a routine that, after turning off the alarm in the morning, Fr.allows you to check the climatic conditions immediately afterwardsAnd. This feature is expected to arrive shortly, via a simple software update.
