This book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students taking physics and chemistry courses at an introductory level, to STEM high-school students, and to more experienced professors and researchers who need to stay up-to-date with the most recent advances on data, as well. It is also beneficial to those involved in materials science, medical physics, biotechnology, astronomy, quantum chemistry, Earth and space science, and other related fields.
The 125 pages paperback volume consists of two parts; the first part is devoted to the quantum mechanics theory of atomic structures as discovered and verified by physics whereas the second part presents and analyzes a large amount of the latest critically evaluated data for the properties of all elements on the periodic table of the elements. Periodic trends for ionization energy, electronegativity, atomic radius, density and melting points are graphed and thoughtfully analyzed. Additional data of ionic radius, covalent radius, van der Waals radius, and 12-coordination atomic radius for almost all elements on the periodic table are also presented and evaluated. The authors discussed over 30 problems, review questions and their solutions to help deepen the insight in this subject area to make this book a real study text. Plenty of problems are given to elucidate the material.
From the beginning, it was authors’ intention to include information in this book that is not easily located elsewhere or is not found completely in a single book or publication. Thus, while this book can be used as a text, the authors hope that it will be used as a useful reference too. Each chapter and sub-chapter of this book capitalizes on the strengths, comments, feedback and criticism that the authors expect to have from students, faculty and working professionals.
