# Periodic table of elements

Since the periodic table of elements in brilliant wiki is blurred and not very useful, I shall remake it here :)

#### Physic constants:

Light speed in a vacuum: $299792458$ meters per second

#### Something fun:

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Why are you making a LaTeX one? A picture would be much more efficient tbh...

Umm... I just like it this way :)

Besides, I’m including the table in Randall Munroe(creator of xkcd)’s Thing Explainer.
