Modern periodic table : Long Form of the Periodic Table

 The classifiacation of elements resulting from an arrangement of the elements in an increasing order of their atomic numbers is the modern periodic table. The properties of elements can be predicted more accurately with the help of the modern periodic table formed on the basis of atomic numbers. The modern periodic table is also called the long form of the periodic table.

 In the modern periodic table the elements are arranged in accordance with their atomic number. (see table 2.7) As a result, most of the drawbacks of Mendeleev’s periodic table appear to be removed. However, the ambiguity about the position of hydrogen is not removed even in the modern periodic table.

 We have seen in the previous standard that the electronic configuration of an atom, the way in which the electron are distributed in the shells around the nucleus, is determined by the total number of electrons in it; and the total number of electrons in an atom is same as the atomic number. The relation between the atomic number of an element and its electronic configuration is clearly seen in the modern periodic table.
