Here is an explanation:

The periodic table law states that properties of elements are periodic function of their atomic number. Although the periodic table law proposed by Dmitri Mendeleev was that elements are arranged in order of increasing atomic weight but it was later modernized that elements do not differ with increasing atomic weight in the periodic table but with there atomic number

Elements in the periodic table are arranged according to there atomic number(proton number).electronegativy increase frm left 2 right while atomic radius increases down the group.

According to d modern periodic law,the valence electrons of elements in dsame period increase progressively by one meaning dat d no of outermost shell increases i.e d atomic number as we across d period.Dats jst d REAL EXPLANATION.

The elements in the periodic table are arranged by the

increasing number of their atomic numbers. Elements

with similar properties are kept together in a vertical

column while the horizontal period contains elements

that show a pattern of change in their physical

U all contributed immensely nd I also like ur curiosity@Chemvik but I must say dat d position of an element in d periodic table is determined by d its atomic number nd not d mass no.

d ansa is D bcoz...d arrangement is made just for us to look for an elements atomic number....its serves for calculation

atomic number can be likened to the serial number of the elements, so it is used to arrange the elements in the periodic table. it is the no of protons which is also the number of electrons and it determines the shell number or shell configuration
