The Elements has develop into a global sensation, with over 1000000 copies in-print worldwide.
The highly-anticipated paperback version of The Elements is ultimately available.
An eye-opening, unique number of attractive, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 parts within the periodic table.
The components are what we, and every thing round us, are made up of. yet what percentage components has an individual truly visible in natural, uncombined form? The Elements provides this infrequent chance. according to seven years of analysis and images, the photographs during this e-book make up the main entire, and visually arresting, illustration to be had to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. equipped so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one point is represented by means of a variety that features a beautiful, full-page, full-color picture that the majority heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab gasoline to a gorgeous faded blue liquid.
Also integrated are interesting proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to information at the houses of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling aspect, valence, electronegativity, and the 12 months and placement during which it used to be stumbled on. a number of extra pictures exhibit each one point in a little altered kinds or as utilized in a variety of functional methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues appears to be like on every one web page in addition to a density scale that runs alongside the bottom.
Packed with attention-grabbing info, this mixture of sturdy technological know-how and attractive creative photos is definitely the right reward booklet for each sentient creature within the universe.
Includes a tear-out poster of Theodore Gray's iconic Photographic Periodic Table!
