- Explains how fundamental properties of atoms determine the chemical properties of elements, and how and why these properties change in the Periodic Table- The main properties discussed include radii and energies, ionization potentials, and electron affinities- Particular emphasis is placed on unique properties of the first s, p, and d shells, on the effects of filled 3d and 4d shells on the properties of p and d elements, and on relativistic effects in the heavy elements
