How did a Russian scientist in the 1860's predict undiscovered elements with just note cards?
There is a pattern here that repeats!
We want to find the new elements first!!
In 1863, there were only 56 known elements. Many scientists & top minds were competing to find new elements through many techniques and complex equipment
One scientist, Dmitri Mendeleev thought we had enough info
I don't think I need any equipment. How about just give me paper & pen & let me think!
What if I just organize all the information we already know about elements and their properties?
His discovery led to the periodic table & to the predication of elements that had not been discovered
I also see holes in the patterns where I think elements could be
Through the use of pen and paper Mendeleev created the periodic table & enabled us to better understand and predict all elements in the universe
