The Elements has develop into a global sensation, with over a million copies in-print worldwide.
The highly-anticipated paperback version of The Elements is ultimately available.
An eye-opening, unique number of wonderful, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 components within the periodic table.
The components are what we, and every thing round us, are made up of. yet what number components has somebody really visible in natural, uncombined form? The Elements provides this infrequent chance. in accordance with seven years of analysis and images, the images during this publication make up the main whole, and visually arresting, illustration on hand to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. prepared so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one point is represented by means of a variety that features a wonderful, full-page, full-color photo that almost all heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab fuel to a stunning faded blue liquid.
Also incorporated are attention-grabbing proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to info at the homes of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling element, valence, electronegativity, and the 12 months and site within which it was once found. a number of extra pictures exhibit every one aspect in a bit altered kinds or as utilized in quite a few functional methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues seems to be on every one web page in addition to a density scale that runs alongside the bottom.
Packed with attention-grabbing info, this mix of reliable technology and attractive creative pictures is the best reward publication for each sentient creature within the universe.
Includes a tear-out poster of Theodore Gray's iconic Photographic Periodic Table!

Sodium (11) takes longer to blow up while tossed in water, however the complete time you’re ready, a plume of hydrogen (1) gasoline is increase, and whilst all that hydrogen ignites, the explosion is far greater than whatever you may get with cesium. i do know this simply because I spent a number of days filming the entire sequence of alkali steel water explosions, debunking a definite British tv exhibit that used a stick of dynamite to “improve” their cesium explosion to compare what they anticipated from its technical reactivity.
