He observed that when elements were arranged in the order of increasing atomic masses, there was much similarity in the properties of every eighth element like the musical notes do, re, me, ect . Newland called this repetition as the law of octaves.
Lithium and sodium share the same physical and chemical properties. Similarly Mg is eighth element to Be, hence both share the same physical and chemical properties
