Hey guys, first post on this forum, LOVE the place, have been surfing around for quite some time!
I thought it would be interesting to see how long it’d take people to memorize the periodic table, and achieving 100% recall. What needs to be memorized is:
Name of the element
Its atomic number
Time starts when you begin memorizing the first element, ends once you achieve full recall of all the required information.
This is not ment as a competition, but rather, it’d be interesting to see at what speeds people can retain valuable information that most who are untrained in this art couldn’t absorb in a lifetime.
There are several ways to approach this. You could memorize it all in a single sitting, or do multiple over the course of however long you decide. Just keep an eye on the clock and add up to its total time invested, and share which approach you used. Also, please do share how you went about memorizing the information.
Good luck guys!
