7B50.50 - Periodic Table

Code Number:
7B50.50
Demo Title:
Periodic Table
Condition:
Good
Principle:
Electron Beams and Properties
Area of Study:
Modern Astronomy
Equipment:
Mounted and moveable Periodic tables.
Procedure:

The lecture rooms have large Periodic tables mounted in them, but at present they only go to element 103.  If a more recent chart is needed one can be attached to the moveable white board and moved into the classroom.
