Classroom Use

The goal of this applet is to provide a tool for reference and instruction for scientists of all levels. This particular version was designed to illustrate electron configurations in periodic trends, with a target audience of High School and College Freshman students. The schematic diagram to the right of the table plots the electron configurations for the selected atom. One important use could be to illustrate the exceptions in periodic trends for electron configurations (i.e. Cr, Cu, etc).
