Google adds an interactive periodic table to its search engine | Digital Trends Spanish

The elements of the periodic table can be a difficult thing to remember, especially if the field of chemistry is not one of your favorite areas. And they are not few, they are 118, so it is quite a challenge.

Fortunately, to make learning the elements less complicated, Google has created an interactive periodic table that you can open directly in your browser.

It is an initiative, which, although it is aimed at students, can be used by anyone. It provides an easily accessible periodic table and a friendlier experience for everyone, with illustrations, colors, 3D elements and more attractive details.

To access this interactive periodic table, you just have to type “Periodic Table” in the Google search engine and click on the result that says “3D Periodic Table – Arts & Culture Experiments with Google”, or you can click on this link. Keep in mind that, at the moment, the platform is only available in English.

Unlike the static tables that we used to see years ago while we were studying, Google’s allows you to filter the elements by colors and types. Also, if you click on one of them you will get information such as atomic mass, density, melting point, boiling point, who discovered it and in what year.

The platform also displays a 3D Bohr atomic model representation of each element, which you can rotate to view it from different perspectives. In addition, it offers a search button for the elements in case you need to expand your knowledge on a certain one, either for a task or simply, to continue learning.
