Problem

Elements in the same group of the periodic table typically have_______.

a. similar mass numbers

b. similar physical properties only

c. similar chemical properties only

d. similar atomic masses.

e. similar physical and chemical properties.

Solution

We’re being asked to determine what is common for elements that are in the same group of the periodic table.


Recall that an element can be represented as:

mass number = # of protons + # of neutrons


Let's analyze each given statement.
