Comparing elements in Mathematica

Postby Kathy_Bautista » Wed Aug 31, 2011 5:01 pm

With Mathematica 8's free-form input, you and your students enter a query in Mathematica using plain English to access data about chemical elements from Wolfram|Alpha. Here are some examples of how you can compare elements in Mathematica through a Wolfram|Alpha query (keyboard shortcut is ==):

== compare N, O, F

== density Gold, Silver

== conductivity sulfur, silicon, copper

== melting points of alkaline earth metals

Enjoy!
