The periodic table is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, ordered by their atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties, whose adopted structure shows periodic trends.

Besides a very organized Periodic Table, this script will tell you lots of information about any periodic element you click on.

In order to use this code, first copy and paste the code into a text editor and save and .html document. Open the html document in a web browser such as Google Chrome which runs this script.
