So tell me…what is the tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, ordered by their atomic number, electron configurations, and recurring chemical properties?
If you don’t know that, well, maybe this new Alexa skill is for you. Called the Periodic Table Guru, this new Alexa skill puts information about the Periodic Table at your fingertips – or at your (voice) command.
I’ve always been fascinated by the Periodic Table and its something I’ve wanted to, at least, learn which chemical abbreviations are assigned to the actual elements. There are few of the element abbreviations that make sense, but most do not, in my opinion. So, having this particular skill enabled is useful. Additionally, its a good study companion for those in high school or college working in chemistry classes.
Some examples of what you can say…
“Alexa, what is a Periodic Table?”
“Alexa, explain periodic table”
“Alexa, what is the symbol of Hydrogen”
“Alexa, what is the name of Ag”
“Alexa, what is the Atomic Number of Lithium?”
“Alexa, what is the Number of Nitrogen”
“Alexa, what is the Atomic Weight of Boron”
“Alexa, what is the Weight of Carbon”
