Until the nineteenth century, the names of organic compounds were given arbitrarily, only remembering their origin or any of their characteristics. Thus, for example, H - COOH was called formic acid because it was found in certain ants. As the number of organic compounds increased, the situation became so complicated that the chemists gathered at the Geneva International Congress in 1892 decided to start rationalizing the organic nomenclature.

Some elements and their findings

The chemical elements are grouped into three major groups: metals, nonmetals and noble gases. Hydrogen (H) does not fit into any of these classifications because it has its own characteristics. Some tables show this division. Metals are chemical elements that have several specific properties, such as gloss, thermal and electrical conductivity, malleability and ductility.

Wave diffraction

Starting from the Huygens Principle, we can explain another wave phenomenon, diffraction. The phenomenon called diffraction is the bending suffered by wave rays when it encounters obstacles to propagation. Imagine the situation where a wave propagates in a medium as far as it finds a crack in a barrier.
