Google adds an interactive periodic table to its search engine. Maybe your chemistry classes can be a little more interesting with Google’s new proposal.
Google integrates a periodic table into the search engine, which will allow you to scroll through different interactive modules and a custom 3D model that gives you information about the elements.
How to use Google’s interactive periodic table?
If the periodic table is not your forte and you find it harder than usual to concentrate on its elements, you can try Google’s new proposal. An interactive periodic table with a 3D model of the atomic model that you can move to observe it from any perspective.
To find this new interactive periodic table from Google just go to this link. Or if you use the English version of the search engine, try searching for “periodic table”. You will see that Google shows you a “3D models” box, with the option “Explore elements”. Just click on it and ready, you will have the interactive periodic table at your disposal.
At first glance, it is one of the many periodic tables that are shared on the Internet. However, if you select an element, you will see that it shows you a 3D representation of Bohr’s atomic model, which you can move, zoom in, change the angle, etc.
And it also adds data about the elements and some curiosities that can help you to remember the periodic table more easily. For example, about Yttrium it mentions that “NASA’s Apollo missions to the Moon brought back samples of lunar rock containing yttrium”.
Or if you take a look at Thallium, you’ll see that it comments that “Agatha Christie used thallium as a murdered agent in her detective novel The Pale Horse.” Of course, it also shows the symbol, atomic number, atomic weight, density, year of discovery, among other data.
So you can repeat this dynamic with all the elements of the periodic table as you prepare for your chemistry lesson.
