Lesson 10 Test - Atomic Size And The Periodic Table - Quiz

Atoms, atomic number and size are factors that define an element and depending on the atomic size or number, an element can be placed as a solid, gas or liquid in a periodic table. This is a good challenge for you if you just studied the periodic table. Give it a shot!


Questions and Answers
