Exploring the Table of Isotopes

Welcome to the Periodic Table of the Isotopes. Choose an element to learn more about its isotopes. Click here for an animated glossary of nuclear terms you may encounter as you tour the isotopes.

When I realized that there may not be a one best ordering of these shells or layers of nucleons I gave some thought as to what would it be like if the the nucleous were fluid and vibrating about so to speak. I then knew I would have to define the internal contraint associated with close packing and perhaps as well correlate the compleated electon shells as well. I had to come up with a way to index this data so that point I dropped all this and started to develope the

The Incremental Table of Atomic Isobars

Most often the occurence of the stable isotopes are displayed in graff form with proton number on the left side and nuetron number on the bottom edge. The data is then a somewhat diagonal line from bottom left to top right. This is not an image that affords the mind any ease to attache high ideas or metaphorical notions upon it. Proposed is a chart form with collume values of ( n = p-1 ), ( n = p ), ( n = p+1 ), etc. and row values of number of nucleons. This image has a much greated facillity to convey real ideas of organizing princple. ,,,, EXAMPLE ,,,, What I would like to do now is to set before you the table you viewed with the caption cosmos with the crust elements included. ,,,, see table ,,,,
