An element is a material that consists of atoms with a given number of protons in the nucleus.
This number is known as the atomic number of the element.

 Atomic number Summary
Atomic number is defined as the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.
It soon came to be understood that the atomic number of an atom is equal to the number of protons in the atom's nucleus.
The atomic number is closely related to the mass number (although they should not be confused) which is the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom.

 Introduction - The Elements
He arranged all known chemical elements in order of their atomic weights and found that similar physical and chemical properties recurred every 7 elements for the lighter elements and every 17 elements for the heavier ones.
When ever an element is referred tro by an integer, that means the atomic number, not the atomic weight.
The atomic number not only the order of the elements in the periodic table; it is also the number of protons in an element.

 Atomic Structure
The atomic number of an element determines the number of protons in an atom of the element.

 The Periodic Table
During the next 200 years, a vast body of knowledge concerning the properties of elements and their compounds was acquired by chemists (view a 1790 article on the elements).
In 1913, Henry Moseley (see a picture) published the results of his measurements of the wavelengths of the x-ray spectral lines of a number of elements which showed that the ordering of the wavelengths of the x-ray emissions of the elements coincided with the ordering of the elements by atomic number.
With the discovery of isotopes of the elements, it became apparent that atomic weight was not the significant player in the periodic law as Mendeleev, Meyers and others had proposed, but rather, the properties of the elements varied periodically with atomic number.

 Chemical Elements - Succeed in Physical Science   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
A chemical element (usually just called an element) is a class of atoms with a specific number of protons in their nuclei (plural of nucleus in Latin).
The average atomic weight is approximately the number of protons and neutrons of the most common isotope of the element.
Since the number of electrons equals the number of protons in an electrically stable atom, the atomic number determines many of the chemical characteristics of the element.

 Introductory Terms, Page 2
By international agreement, the upper case letter Z is used to represent the atomic numbers of all the elements.
Atomic weight is the decimal number most commonly associated with each element's symbol on the Periodic Chart.
The values for the atomic weights of the elements are calculated by summing the products of the different individual Isotope Masses multiplied by the decimal equivalent of their percent of abundance values.

 Atomic Theory
All atoms of an element have the same number of protons or atomic number, but their number of neutrons can be different.
During alpha decay, the mass of the parent atom decreases by 4 and the atomic number decreases by 2.
The number of decay is not completely regular, but on average the number of decays for a particular isotope is consistent.

 Periodic table - Pharmpedia
Progressing through a group from lightest element to heaviest element, the outer-shell electrons (those most readily accessible for participation in chemical reactions) are all in the same type of orbital, with a similar shape, but with increasingly higher energy and average distance from the nucleus.
francium, the heaviest element of the group, the outer-shell electron is in the seventh-shell orbital, significantly further out on average from the nucleus than those electrons filling all the shells below it in energy.
John Alexander Reina Newlands, who in 1865 noticed that the elements of similar type recurred at intervals of eight, which he likened to the octaves of music, though his law of octaves was ridiculed by his contemporaries.

 Atomic Mass and Weight | World of Earth Science
Atomic mass is sometimes erroneously confused with atomic weight—the obsolete term for relative atomic mass.
Periodic tables, for example usually list the atomic weights of individual elements based upon the natural distribution of isotopes of that element.
The debate as to which element was to be used as the standard for atomic weights extended into the twentieth century, with the most popular positions being hydrogen with a weight of 1 or oxygen with a weight of 16.

The ·lexical space· of a ·list· datatype is a set of literals whose internal structure is a space-separated sequence of literals of the ·atomic· datatype of the items in the ·list·.
[Definition:]   The ·atomic· or ·union· datatype that participates in the definition of a ·list· datatype is known as the itemType of that ·list· datatype.
A literal in the ·lexical space· representing a decimal number d maps to the normalized value in the ·value space· of float that is closest to d in the sense defined by [Clinger, WD (1990)]; if d is exactly halfway between two such values then the even value is chosen.

Lists can be administered by users or administrators via VisNetic WebMail, the Jabber Instant Messaging Client, and addresses can be added via the Challenge-Response Mechanism - e.g., if a message originator verifies himself as a legitimate source he or she can automatically be added to the white list.
When an IMAP user accesses their folder list, they will see both their private and shared folders; mail directories may be shared, while limiting each user to the mail server associated with their individual logon credentials.
If the number of attempts in a session exceeds the number specified by the Admin, the IP address of the sender will be remembered for that period and no access from that IP address will be allowed within the period.
