New Version Of Atomic Mac Breaks Things Down

Black Cat Systems has released a new version of their modern day Periodic Table of the Elements, The Atomic Mac. Version 4.5 includes a Table of the Nuclides for easy access to over 1,600 isotope listings. According to Black Cat Systems:

Black Cat Systems ( has released version 4.5.0 of The Atomic Mac, the premier periodic table of the elements and nuclear database for the Macintosh. <> The latest version adds a Table of the Nuclides, for quick and easy access to detailed information on 1,600 nuclides (isotopes).

The Atomic Mac is a periodic table of the elements for the Macintosh. In addition to the usual information found in such programs, The Atomic Mac also contains a wealth of nuclear information on each isotope, including half life, decay mode, and daughter products. X-ray data (fluorescence and binding energies) is also available. A molecular weight calculator makes it easy to find the molecular weight of compounds. A shaded diagram showing the ranges of physical properties makes it easy to visualize relationships across the periodic table.

Data is displayed for the following physical properties:

  • Density
  • Heat of Vaporization
  • Heat of Fusion
  • Specific Heat
  • Thermal Conductivity
  • Linear Expansion Coefficient
  • Melting Point
  • Boiling Point
  • Atomic Radius
  • Covalent Radius
  • Magnetic Susceptability
  • Electrical Resistivity
  • Electron Affinity
  • Electric Dipole Polarizability
  • State (gas, liquid, solid)
  • Photoelectric Work Function
  • Electronegativity
  • Crystal Structure
  • Abundance in Earthis Crust
  • Abundance in Earthis Sea
  • Abundance in Solar System
  • Photon Interactions
  • Visible Light Spectra
  • Magnetic Dipole Moment
  • Electric Quadrupole Moment
  • Nuclear Spin

The Atomic Mac is available for US$25. You can find more information at the Black Cat Systems web site.
