# Why are there only two elements in the first period of the periodic table?(1 point)

because the next elements have other things in common and they need to be arranged together

because each row increases in atomic mass by a specific number, so anything over five is in the second row

because the first two elements both start with H and are grouped together

1. Your question is hard to read and hard to understand.
The first one: There are only two electrons in the first orbit; therefore, when those two electrons are inserted (H and He), the next electron must go into the second orbit and that begins period 2.

The modern periodic table is based on atomic number; i.e., the number of protons in the nucleus.

The maximum deflection will be due to low energy alpha particles interacting with large masses.
