    Hello everyone. Iíve been here a few days so I thought Iíd introduce myself. I was a physicist for a long time, hence my handle. I just couldn't think of a new one after all the ones I've had in the past and all the e-mail names etc. Merely a lack of imagination.

    I retired recently and am now enjoying the retired life very much. I can now spend my time helping others learn physics, watching my new 70Ē HDTV smart as well as discuss the various aspects of it that I enjoy. It's been a life long dream of mine to obtain a TV that fills most of the wall. If you can afford one I highly recommend it.So I hope I can help anybody that I can, make some new friends and live peacefully with all of you. The rest Iíll ignore of course.

    FYI: Just to be clear, I will not say anything that might help determine my real identity. That means I wonít talk about where I live, what my real is, what orgamnizations I worked for, the jobs Iíve held or what articles I've written or how many I've written. I found it to be dangerous to do so. I actually had a stalker problem because of it. I corrected him so many times that he didnít take kindly to it and came after me.

    So I look forward to talking to all you nice folks about our common interest.

    Hi Mr. Physicist!

    I'm new here as well. I am a student of all science. I am especially interested in astrophysics and chemistry. I have never taken any scholastic courses and so therefore I consider myself still very much an amateur, however, I have been studying this stuff since the early 80's. I am sorry that you had such a bad experience with your stalker. The internet can be a very dangerous place and so I can understand your desire to remain anonymous on this open forum. Many people do.

    If you would like to discuss something, we could try my theory concerning pascal's triangle and the periodic table of elements. It would be much easier to describe this graphically, however, I have not figured out how to do that here just yet. So, here goes!

    per s p d f b
    |1 2| 2
    |2 2 6| 8
    |3 2 6 10| 18
    |4 2 6 10 14| 32
    |5 2 6 10 14| 18 50
    |6 2 6 10| 14 32
    |7 2 6| 10 18
    8 2 6 8
    9 2 2
    18 42 50 42 18 170
    52 new elements

    Above I show (out-lined) the four orbitals of the periodic table at present.
    Based on the fact that there are two periods that contain f type electron orbits
    and my theory that the structure is a pascal pyramid, I postulate that there exists
    a new electron orbit (b type) that contains 18 electrons. Further, this orbital would
    add an additional two periods to the table.
    I arrived at 18 by observing the simple ascending pattern of 2,6,10 and 14. Each
    successive orbit type adds 4 new electrons.
    This theory predicts that this new type does exist to finish the pascal pattern and
    that there may be only one orbital containing 18, however, does not exclude adding
    additional orbitals, types and elements. The next orbital would, of course, have 22
    electrons and add 72 more elements to the table.

    What do you think?

    I suggest you look at the Wikipedia article Electron configuration (and following links if necessary).
    A tensor equation that is valid in any coordinate system is valid in every coordinate system.

    KJW:

    I have seen this stuff before. It is the same data that I used to base my theory upon.

    Basically, what I am stating is that there exists a pattern in the structure of the electron configurations that resembles a pascal triangle. I have simply expanded upon this to predict the possibility of a new electron shell, two new periods and 52 new elements.

    Then you perhaps ought to have noted what was said about the additional orbitals.

    I should remark that in Chemistry, one is taught the structure of periodic table in substantial detail, too much detail to post here, which is why I referred you to the Wikipedia article which seemed to be most explanatory (including links to other articles).

    So from what I read (I.e. 2(2l+1)) then the next shell should contain 2(2(4)+1) = 18 electrons which is exactly what I am showing in the table. Is this what you wanted me to review?

    Yes.

    So what you are saying is that the function {y = 2(2x+1)} is the same as pascal's triangle?
