Elements And Their Properties, Periodic Table And Trends, Compounds Unit 5 - Quiz 1

Elements can be characterized by their atomic size, which in turn defines its strength. An element with the largest atomic size can be said to be stronger because of its ability to withstand any kind of pressure exerted on it. Test how well you understood unit five on elements by taking up the quiz below.
