Frequencies for the Periodic table of elements

Is there a list of frequencies for all the Periodic table of elements in there natural state? :idea:

Please help,

I see. :oops:

However I'm the one that will conquer gravity while you suck down another banana that will
in turn make gravity suck you down. :lol:

Thanks for thinking I'm bananas. Now I know I'm on the right track! :wink:

Umm, isn't this the internet tho?

I have exactly the same question as Rus27, assuming frequency did actually mean abundance, and was quite disappointed that the only answer you could give was "look it up in the library". This is supposed to be the information super highway...?

It's 130am here and I don't think my library is open.

Can nobody answer this question with a list of 117 elements in order of abundance by percentage (based on a ratio of abundance to weight or... whatever it should be based on??) I apologise if my terminology is wrong... science isn't my specialty. I hope this example helps clarify my question.

Eg (and I have no idea on the accuracy)

42% Hydrogen
27% Iron
etc

I tried Master Google and he doesn't seem to have an answer... I thought that a site dedicated to elements could hopefully provide one. )

Thanks in advance if you can.

The information can be found here: CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics as Martin17 said.

There are several copyright issues involved from displayuing the information, so go look it up. :P Maybe it's on their website?

folks,
"frequency" is how often something happens.

It is usually given in units of "hertz" (abbreviation: Hz). One hertz means "once per second"

The question "what are the frequencies of the elements"
is completely meaningless!

I mean "how often is helium?" Wha?

You might as well ask "what direction is cheese?"
or "why does red smell of elephant?"

Ahh, that makes sence then. Thanks for the replies.

Not to stick my nose up at copyright but I read an article that says "... the percentage of gases in the atmosphere that are connected with biology tends to vary over time." (http//pages.prodigy.net/aesir/24Jan02.htm). If this is true then there is no harm in taking an educated guess as the accuracy of the copyrighted material is most likely wrong anyway.

Re feline... yeah, I understood that from the witty banter above. However, if, at this piont in time, there are 10,000 gazillion atoms of helium and only three atoms of element 118, then surely a list of percentages as to the relative abundance can be made. Also, frequency is "The number of measurements in an interval of a frequency distribution" (http//dictionary.reference.com/search?q=frequency) so although frequency probably has a very specific definition in the scientific world, it also has a very broad meaning which is appropriate to a laymen in this instance. Ie the amount of existing atoms over time (which is not measured in hurtz) is a frequency.

I'm sure I will rip myself out of this chair and go look up that book in my library.

Thanks,
Darren

No it *isn't* a frequency.

That's like saying "I am 10 hours tall"
or "my weight is 48 metres"

And the unit is "hertz", not "hurtz", named after Herr Hertz.

However the best pun on the subject was generally in Brian Eno's "KING'S LEAD HAT" (from 1978's "before and after science" album), where he declaimed:

[i]The killer cycles (HUMDRUM)
the killer hurts
the passage of my life is measured out in shirts
[/i][/i]

There is more then one definition of frequency. :roll:

Webster dictionary ranks the definition of a word in order of common use. I believe russ used frequency as the first defintion implies, and feline uses frequency as the second defintion defines it.

Although, Russ's word choice did leave alot to be desired.

http://webster.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=frequency&x=0&y=0

No, Russ means that "everything is just vibrations, maaan!"
and is talking about chakras and the music of the spheres and stuff :-)

In actual fact, of course, numerous phenomena to do with elements have characteristic frequencies.... emission spectra would a classic example.
Molecular vibration and rotation spectra would be another.
Plenty of scope for looking into outer space and seeing such things with radio telescope.....
