The early development of the Periodic Law or table was found by many contributions from a variety of scientists. The contributions led to the discovery and establishment of the Periodic Table. Which help create the Periodic Table we use as of today. The person who created the Periodic Table was a chemist named Dmitri Mendeleev, but not without the help of a few other scientist who helped him get the idea by passing down information they had found. Mendeleev discovered the Periodic Table by trying to organize the elements. He was writing the properties of the elements and arranging them. Until he realized, that by putting them in order of increasing atomic weight the next certain types of elements regularly occurred. The other person that helped develop the Periodic Table was Antoine

The Periodic Table is a table of the chemical elements arranged in order of atomic number, usually in rows, so that elements with similar atomic structure (and hence similar chemical properties) appear in vertical columns. The Periodic Table illustrates the Periodic Law by showing the pattern of the elements in order by atomic numbers. It also shows what elements have similar atomic structure by appearing in the vertical columns. The Periodic Law is shown in the Periodic Table by revealing what elements fall in order, due to similar properties occurring at regular intervals. It is used to tell which elements go where on the Periodic Table and which elements will react with each other if combined together. It also shows which elements will be grouped together by the similarity of their atomic structure. As shown the Periodic Law is well illustrated in Periodic Table in order for it to be used
