define table

In other tables, lutetium and lawrencium are the remaining group 3 members.[n 13] Early techniques for chemically separating scandium, yttrium and lutetium relied on the fact that these elements occurred Periodic Table of Elements Printable   together in the so-called “yttrium group” whereas La and Ac occurred together in the “cerium group”.[137] Accordingly, lutetium rather than lanthanum was assigned to group 3 by some chemists in the 1920s and 30s.[n 14] Several physicists in the 1950s and ’60s favoured lutetium, in light of a comparison of several of its physical properties with those of lanthanum.[137] This arrangement, in which

lanthanum is the first member of the f-block, is disputed by some authors since lanthanum lacks any f-electrons. It has been argued that this is not valid concern given other periodic table anomalies—thorium, for example, has no f-electrons yet is part of the f-block.[144] As for lawrencium, its gas phase atomic electron configuration was confirmed in 2015 as [Rn]5f147s27p1. Such a configuration represents another periodic table anomaly, regardless of whether lawrencium is located in the f-block or the d-block, as the only potentially applicable p-block position has been reserved for nihonium with its predicted configuration of [Rn]5f146d107s27p1.[145][n 15]

if you are find it then click it Circumference of Cylinder Formula  scandium, yttrium and  affect vs effect quiz  lutetium (and presumably lawrencium) behave like trivalent versions of the group 1–2 metals.[147] On the other hand, trends going down the group for properties such as melting point, electronegativity and ionic radius, are similar to those found among their group 4–8 counterparts.[137] In this variant, the number of f electrons in the gaseous forms of the f-block atoms usually matches their position in

the f-block. For example, the f-electron counts for the first five f-block elements are La 0, Ce 1, Pr 3, Nd 4 and PGroups included in the transition metalsA few authors position all thirty lanthanides and actinides in the two   free vpn server  below yttrium (usually via footnote markers). This variant emphasizes similarities in the chemistry of the 15 lanthanide elements (La–Lu), possibly at the expense of ambiguity as to which elements occupy the two group 3 positions below yttrium, and a 15-column wide f block (there can only be 14 elements in any row of the f block).[n 16]

The definition of a transition metal, as given by IUPAC, is an element whose atom has an incomplete d sub-shell, or which can give  New Blog and Magazine themes of 2018 New Blog and Magazine themes of 2018  rise to cations with an incomplete d sub-shell.[148] By this definition all of the elements in groups 3–11 are transition metals. The IUPAC definition therefore excludes group 12, comprising zinc, cadmium and mercury, from the t
