On a periodic table what element goes into or went into slot 113?
So I was sitting in physical geology class today and on the wall was a periodic table. I was trying to see how many symbols I remembered from high school... that would be back in 1984... but I noticed that there was a space between 112 and 114 as though something had been removed... what was it? why is it gone? was it ever there?
eka-thallium, often refered to simply as "element 113". Wonder what happened to it?
My understanding was that the periodic table has blank spots for undiscovered or assumed elements that for a few reasons were unable to be discovered. Example elements 99 and 100 were undiscovered till the 1952 fallout from the hydrogen bomb explosion at Eniwetok Atoll in Pacific Ocean.
Back in 2003/04, experiments were performed on element 115. Now I am not technical enough to get into the whole thing, but basically the results of those tests exposed or brought to light element 113. Both are considered temporary till proven by other labs ... but the element 113 is called (temporarily) Ununtrium or Uut. Eka-thallium is its alternative name.
so the scientific community is waiting for another lab to duplicate those experiments that took place back in 02/04 before they can accurately lable a new element?
Davenmidtown - not a specific lab, but any lab or such. For a 'discovery' to be legit, it needs to be duplicated by other scientists. Verified if you will.
yes... kind of what cold fushion was missing... is missing...

In his periodic table, Mendeleyev named this element eka-silicon. How do we know it now?

Yeah, I think I just made it up cause I am bored. Someone could have coined it, but since I have never heard of it it is mine. What is the science of size. It's the largest thing you could ever image...
