    1. Gather the following information for the first 18 elements in the periodic table and create a vector for each:

    • name
    • symbol
    • atomic number
    • atomic weight
    • phase (gas, liquid, solid)
    • group number (1–18)
    • row number
    • atomic radius (in picometers)
    • electronegativity
    • first ionization potential (in electron volts)

    Combine these vectors into a single data frame and save it as a .csv file. In addition, save the data frame and the individual vectors as a single .RData file. You will use these files to complete exercises in some of the chapters that follow.
