What are the 18 elements?
Also question is, what is the 18th element of the periodic table?
One may also ask, why are the first 18 elements special? (1) The electrons fit nicely into three orbitals. Remember that the electrons spin around the nucleus in regions called orbitals. (3) It is a lot easier to remember facts about 18 elements as opposed to over 100 elements.
In this regard, how many elements are there in the 18th group?
