Group Number Helium (He) (& Color, Uses ...

All atoms have a group name assigned, even Helium. Ok but how do we know what is the group name for an atom of He?

If we know the symbol, let's say He, we may then open any periodic table and search for Helium. Any decent periodic table should have the group numbers when you scroll up starting from the element you found.

In the case of Helium the group number is 18. There is a lot of cool stuff about Helium that people simply don't know. Why not stick around for a bit?

  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances

Colored Periodic Table

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to maker your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like He group number and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)

Download and enjoy this complete and colored periodic table for you to edit and enjoy. It's in an editable excel format or .ods (open).

Citation

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Group Number Helium (He) (& Color, Uses ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
