Downloadable simulation: Periodic table in 3D (Mathematica)

Posted on August 24, 2010 by


Downloadable simulation showing periodic trends in the properties of elements in a novel way. Good for seeing how electronegativity, atomic radius, and so on, change across groups and periods.

This Demonstration shows 3D bar charts of the periodic table with various element property values


Mathematica is a program that let’s computers simulate complex mathematics using files called Mathematica notebooks. To run the simulation you must first download a Mathematica player (free!) and then download any notebooks you want to run.
