Periodic table arranges all the chemical elements into groups and rows. Today we are going to talk about the Groups of the periodic table, what are they, their function, and the number of groups. Read the full article for more information.
What are the Groups on the Periodic Table
The group is the column of the periodic table in which elements are placed. The group is also known as the family. There are 18 groups in the periodic table. The block F that is between group three and four are not numbered. The elements placed in the same group have the same chemical and physical properties.
What are the 3 Groups on the Periodic Table?
Group three is also the group of the periodic table. The elements in this group are scandium, yttrium, and either lanthanum or lutetium. Lanthanum carries the trend that is started by two lighter elements in chemical behaviour whereas lutetium acts similarly to yttrium. They are silvery-white colour metals under standard conditions.
What are the 8 Groups of the Periodic Table?
Group 8 is also the group of the periodic table. It comprises the elements like iron, ruthenium, osmium, and hassium. All these elements are the transition metals.
What Do Groups on the Periodic Table Represent?
There are the methods of group numbering. The modern numbering group 1 to group 18 is given by the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry). It replaces the two previous naming schemes. Groups are identified by their topmost element and have a specific name.
