Why would you consult the Periodic Table?(that’s not where you want to go to prove your point.)
Why not the periodic table that identifies elements by atomic weight and group? That does not count?
And why are using the term “metals”?(everything is metal except H and He..right?)
Not I, astrophycisists do.
If not then your argument is a goofy example in semantics.
I don’t have patience for semantic fun time gleaned from some show you watched on PBS.
Keep up that attitude. Very productive..
So please, stick with your position that all elements heavier than H and He are metals.
Actually, it seems that astrophycisists use that short-hand grouping. You want to deride them also?. Be my guest,
Yeah that’s good. That makes you sound informed
Apparently more informed than you. At least I understood what Darron was talking about.
Now you’re an expert in stellar elemental evolution.
Awwww, you give me too much credit, but thank you
