What is the fundamental difference between the modern formulation of the periodic law and the previous Mendeleev’s?

The difference is that the properties of the atoms of chemical elements, as well as the composition and properties of the substances they form, are periodically dependent not on the magnitude of their atomic masses, but on the charges of atomic nuclei.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
