Mendeleev organized his chart from lightest-to-heaviest elements and then used a repeating pattern based on the Physical & Chemical properties of the elements.
The prefix Eka mean close to or related to.
Germanium was discovered by a ________ scientist.
Gallium was discovered by a ________ scientist.
This is what is looks like today.
Every empty green slot is a spot where Mendeleev predicted an unknown element would go.
Mendeleev’s Predicted Elements
Every white slot represented a possible unknown elements, but Mendeleev did not have enough information to make predictions about the properties of these elements.
