Got a Periodic Table handy?


I aks, because if you are doing your chemistry homework, you should have access to a Periodic Table. No one expects you to know offhand that the atomic number, #Z#, of #Ni=28#; this is why you would be issued with a Periodic Table in every chem and physics exam you ever sit. You will be expected to know what #Z# signifies in terms of atomic structure: how many protons; how many electrons; how many neutrons in #""^58Ni#. You will also be expected to know how the use the Table.
