in 9th you are not doing much with d block elements.

Period 4-

The first row in the D-block denotes the elements with period 4. These are Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn. As they are ten in total and hence we further divide them in two groups. The first part is Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn and the second one includes Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn.

The first should better me mugged up as Scandium saw Titanic in Vettri Chrompet Theatre with Manganese. Now, to memorize the second part is an arduous task. So we are actually trying to learn the elements Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn. We read these symbols as Feh Co Nee Ku Zinc – FeCo NiCu Zn. Just assume that Fe, Co and Ni, Cu are two couples while Zn is still a bachelor. The chief point to be noted here is that there are chances of messing up Cobalt (Co) with Copper (Cu). So keep a note of that!

Period 5-

This period is quite entertaining. Just imagine it to be a story of two friends Y and Z i.e. Yttrium and Zed/Zee Zirconium respectively. So, Y and Z are two mates who say Namba (Nb) Teacher (Tc) R-square(Ru,Rh)” (Our teacher R-square). And henceforth, they dance and sing on music numbers from CD- Padi(Pd) Aaadi(Ag) Cd.

Thus, the crux to remember period 5 is

Y and Z – two friends – say “Namba Teacher R-square” – and Padi, Aadi to a Cd.

Period 6-

The elements covered under this category include Hf, Ta, W, Re, Os, Ir, Pt, Au and Hg.

The simplest way to memorize this is to consider them in reverse order and then we try to associate them with some related words. Let’s see how we do this-

Hg – Mercury – Marie – This is a reputed brand of biscuit in India.

W – Tungsten – Wandhichu or Vandhichu- which implies “to come” or “to get affected with”

“Ta – Tantalum – Theriyuma – meaning “do you know”?

Just try to imagine that we are conversing with the element Hafnuim, then our words would be

“Marie Gold Platinum biscuit saaptu Irridium ku Soree Wandhichu Theriyuma Hafnium?”

The above thing can better be comprehended as

“Marie(Hg) Gold(Au) Platinum(Pt) biscuit saaptu Irridium(Ir) ku SoRee(OsRe) Wandhichu(W) Theriyuma(Ta) Hafnium(Hf) ?”

which decodes to “Hey hafnium, did you know that Irridium got a bad itch after eating Marie Gold Platinum biscuits ?”

Last but not the least, do not ignore the first element of the atomic periodic table which is also the leading element of Lanthanides i.e. Lanthanum.
