Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#7081. Name the Russian chemist and inventor (8 February 1834 – 2 February 1907) (O.S. 27 January 1834 – 20 January 1907). He formulated the Periodic Law, created a farsighted version of the periodic table of elements, and used it to correct the properties of some already discovered elements and also to predict the properties of eight elements yet to be discovered.

#7082. Name the German mechanical engineer and physicist (27 March 1845 – 10 February 1923), who, on 8 November 1895, produced and detected electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength range known as X-rays or Röntgen rays, an achievement that earned him the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901. In honour of his accomplishments, in 2004 the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) named element 111, a radioactive element with multiple unstable isotopes, after him.

Hi,

#7091. Who wrote 'A New System of Chemical Philosophy'?

#7092. Name the English physicist, whose contribution to the science of physics was the justification from physical laws of the previous empirical and chemical concept of the atomic number (23 November 1887 – 10 August 1915). This stemmed from his development of law in X-ray spectra.

Wow! Never clicked on this thread to see what is here. I am really a GK enthusiast and I love each and every general knowledge question I come across.

I had also written an answer on Quora about some amazing GK facts. Here's it https://www.quora.com/What-are-some-goo … kherjee-75
