Trends Across the Periodic Table  

This chapter explores trends across the periodic table. The physical trends across the periodic table include metal, non-metal, metalloids, and electrical conductivity. The chemical trends across the periodic table involve the oxidation state as elements shift drastically due to their reaction to oxygen. Phosphorus, sulfur, and chloride for a variety of oxides. The chapter also tackles the melting points, ionization energies, and atomic radii across periods 2 and 3 of the periodic table. The melting point of a metallic element is dependent on the strength of the metallic bonding and the attraction between metal ions and a delocalized sea of electrons.
