I think in all fairness, it would be adviseable to accept the alternative names (natrium beside sodium; kalium beside potassium, wolfram beside tungsten...) since they are widely used and the abbreviations arise from these.

Chemical engineering at Purdue made me remember these. Spelling was a nightmare to try and figure out, and by no means was it fast, I had about a minute and a half left, but I did do it.

Oct 25, 2023
This website sometimes has words that automatically correct your answer if your spelling is wrong. It doesn't happen all the time but I'm sure that if you type 'thalium' instead of 'thallium' it'll answer anyway which means it's not too accurate. I've heard about the 3 or 4 elements that start with 'Un-, Uno-' but can't seem to notice it on this quiz for a while yet this has been updated 3 years ago. So 'oganesson' remains as the 118th or last element. And I don't even know if Google is accurate for me, it's probably giving me false information about which is the last element or if they're the same.
+1
Level 15
Nov 29, 2023
the un- and uno- elements are either hypothetical or just outdated names for the elements 113-118
+1
Level 92
Jan 17, 2024
Really they were just used as placeholders in order to refer to elements that haven't been discovered yet, and show their location on the table. These names are literally just the Latinized number with a suffix added--118 was Un Un Oct ium. 119 at the start of period 8 is Un Un Enn ium, then 120 Un Bi Nil ium, 121 Un Bi Un ium, 122 Un Bi Bi um, 123 Un Bi Tri um, etc.

There's Hydrogen and Helium

Then Lithium, Beryllium

Boron, Carbon everywhere

Nitrogen all through the air

With Oxygen so you can breathe

And Fluorine for your pretty teeth

Neon to light up the signs

Sodium for salty times

Silicon

(Phosphorus, then Sulfur) Chlorine and Argon

(Potassium) And Calcium so you'll grow strong

(Scandium) Titanium, Vanadium and Chromium and Manganese

This is the Periodic Table

Noble gas is stable

Halogens and Alkali react aggressively

Each period will see new outer shells

While electrons are added moving to the right

Iron is the 26th

Then Cobalt, Nickel coins you get

Copper, Zinc and Gallium

Germanium and Arsenic

Selenium and Bromine film

While Krypton helps light up your room

Rubidium and Strontium then Yttrium, Zirconium

Molybdenum, Technetium

(Ruthenium) Rhodium, Palladium

(Silver-war) Then Cadmium and Indium

(Tin-cans) Antimony then Tellurium and Iodine and Xenon

And then Caesium and

Barium is 56, and this is where the table splits

Where Lanthanides have

+1
Level 20
Apr 1, 2024
just begun

Lanthanum, Cerium and Praseodymium

Neodymium's next to Promethium, then 62

Samarium, Europium, Gadolinium, and Terbium

Dysprosium, Holmium, Erbium

Thulium, Ytterbium, Lutetium

Hafnium, Tantalum, Tungsten

Then we're on to Rhenium, Osmium, and Iridium

Platinum, Gold to make you rich till you grow old

Mercury to tell you when it's really cold

Thallium and Lead, then Bismuth for your tummy

Polonium, Astatine would not be yummy

Radon, Francium will last a little time

Radium, then Actinides at 89

This is the Periodic Table

Noble Gas is stable

Halogens and Alkali react aggressively

Each period we'll see new outer shells

While electrons are to the right

Actinium, Thorium, Protactinium

Uranium, Neptunium, Plutonium

Americium, Curium, Berkelium, Californium

Einsteinium, Fermium, Mendelevium, Nobelium

Lawrencium, Rutherfordium, Dubnium, Seaborgium

Bohrium, Hassium, then Meinerium, Darmstadtium

Roentgenium, Copernicium

Ununtrium, Flerovium

Ununpentium, Livermorium

Ununseptium, Ununoctiu
