This lab was about the elements and compounds. we recorded our observations of the elements and used the Elements 4D app and to see if elements would react if they we’re connected.
- I would say the majority of our reactions contained either sodium or oxygen. sodium reacted with fluorine and chloride, and oxygen reacted with lithium and hydrogen.
- In my lab we didn’t really test the same element that wasn’t reactive with other elements so it’s a variation. for example chlorine did not react with titanium, gold and nitrogen didn’t cause a reaction and iron and oxygen also did not react.
- My guess would be that if tried to “combine” anything in row #18 (noble gases) that are not reactive with something like chlorine which is a row #17 (halogens) which is very reactive it would not react because of the fact that noble gases don’t react to anything.
- in the period table of elements row #1 (alkali metals) is very reactive, row #2 (alkaline earth metals) is more composed, #17 (halogens) is VERY reactive and row #18 (noble gases) is not reactive at all. So now knowing that I understand why some elements that could possibly both be in row #18 did not react, and same with why some elements did react with each other.
