The names of the scientists, Newlands, Mendeleev, and Meyer are associated with the development of
A. atomic structure
C. periodic table of contents
D. discovery of elements
The periodic table lists all the existing elements in the universe. The periodic table typically arranges the elements in increasing atomic number, but elements with similar characteristics are grouped together. As such, one can identify material properties (such as electrical conductivity) by just identifying the location zone of the element within the table.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The names of these scientists are associated with the development of the C. periodic table of elements.
Newlands made a "law of octaves" which arranged elements in terms of relative atomic masses. Mendeleev is credited for his periodic law, which is one of the first (if not the very first) periodic tables. Meyer also made an arrangement of elements in terms of periodic trends. Since all three scientists have to do with arranging elements instead of discovering them, they all made contributions to the periodic table.
