What are lanthanides and actinides?
Asked by bosesreyan | 15th Apr, 2015, 11:58: PM
The lanthanide or lanthanoid series comprises the fifteen elements with atomic numbers 57 through 71, fromlanthanum to lutetium. All lanthanides are f-block elements, corresponding to the filling of the 4f electron shell.
The actinide or actinoid series encompasses the 15 chemical elements that lie between actinium and lawrencium included on the periodic table, with atomic numbers 89 - 103. The actinoid series derives its name from the first element in the series, actinium, and ultimately from the Greek aktis, "ray," reflecting the elements' radioactivity.

- drawbacks of mendeleev and modern periodic table with example
- Que:-How it can be proved that the basic structure of the Modern Periodic Table is based on the electronic configuration of atoms of different elements?
- how does the atomic size vary as you go down a group?
- Just as the way we locate a point on graph as (x, y), can we locate an element as (group number, period)?
- Dear teachers give some questions. From the chapter periodic classification of element .. that will come on board
