Hmmm...does Oganesson really belong in the noble gas category? I seem to remember reading that it was even more reactive than Tennessine, a halogen. I guess we'll just have to wait and see...
+1
Level 90
Dec 7, 2016
With a half-life of less than a microsecond, it's hard to be sure of much yet, but it appears that under normal conditions, it's in a solid state, not a gas.
+1
Level 90
Jun 24, 2021
However, its position in the table is based on a electron configuration (7 full shells, so rightmost of the 7th row), so yes, it is in the right place, even if it's not a 'Noble Gas.'

Dec 9, 2016
As I continue to work on this, I had a thought- is it possible to make the table (which helps so much and I love it) have a mouseover after you finish like the maps do? It's a lot easier for me to see what I missed that way rather than scrolling through the answers.

Moscovium, Tennessine, Oganesson, and Nihonium? I've taken this quiz before but have never seen this. Did they officially name all the 110s elements, then? (Safe to assume that Moscovium was discovered by a Russian scientists and Nihonium by Japanese scientists?)

There ought to be three sets of answers.

We know there ought to be five halogens - have we got them all?

The problems come with rare earths and the trans-uranics. Then we just remember Sweden ....
