What the heck is "The Periodic Table" ?

The Periodic Table is an arrangement of elements into rows and columns according to similarities in their properties. The rows are called periods, while the columns are called groups. Starting in the first column, first row, the atomic number of Hydrogen is 1. Moving to the left, the number increases by 1 for every element there is. Along with the increasing atomic number, the atomic mass also increases everytime you move to the left. The periodic table can also help you figure out what charge an element has. The periodic table can also help you do orbital notation because it groups the elements into s,p,d, and f orbitals.
