How did Mendeleev arrange the elements in the periodic table?

Mendeleev realized that the physical and chemical properties of elements were related to their atomic mass in a 'periodic' way, and arranged them so that groups of elements with similar properties fell into vertical columns in his table.
A.

How was the periodic table invented?

In 1869, just five years after John Newlands put forward his law of octaves, a Russian chemist called Dmitri Mendeleev published a periodic table. Mendeleev also arranged the elements known at the time in order of relative atomic mass, but he did some other things that made his table much more successful.
  • How are the elements created?

    Stars create new elements in their cores by squeezing elements together in a process called nuclear fusion. First, stars fuse hydrogen atoms into helium. Helium atoms then fuse to create beryllium, and so on, until fusion in the star's core has created every element up to iron.
  • Why do we need the periodic table?

    Before all the naturally-occurring elements were discovered, the periodic table was used to predict the chemical and physical properties of elements in the gaps on the table. The table is useful for modern students and scientists because it helps predict the types of chemical reactions that are likely for an element.
  • Who proposed the law of Triad?

    Johann Döbereiner
B.

How periodic table is formed?

Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev produced a periodic table based on atomic weights but arranged 'periodically'. Elements with similar properties appeared under each other. Gaps were left for yet to be discovered elements.

  • How many elements were there in Mendeleev periodic table?

    The concept of a systematic measure for atomic weights greatly contributed to the success of Mendeleev's periodic table. In 1864, with about 50 elements known, the British chemist John Newlands noticed a pattern when he arranged the elements in order of atomic mass, or weight.
