First Law, Four Subatomic Particles

In the Colossuss Galaxy, atoms work differently as the ones that we all know in Earth. Atoms have an extra subatomic particle that either does not exist, or has not yet been discovered in Earth, called Nucleon. This fourth subatomic particle is always in the exact center of the nucleus and has no electric charge.   This atomic particle generates a new definition of periodic table, because before its discover it was thought that elements where grouped by groups of three, and this number will decrease until reaching individual elements. Therefore, a new periodic table had to be made, and the result was three similar tables, one for each number of Nucleons present on its atoms.   The first table is the same as our known one on earth, with only a few changes. The second one consists of only 97 known elements, which all have exactly one Nucleon, and proton numbers reaching up to 97. The third and last table, which contains the elements with two Nucleons, consists of 37 known elements.   There are at least 20 elements that are not featured in any table, and that is because the fact that it is unknown the number of Nucleons that they have, so they are always disposed in a different table, an unofficial and very controversial table, which contains these particular elements.  

Manifestation

  They manifest on chemical reactions mostly. While in Earth electrons are the only link between atoms, in the Colossuss Galaxy the Nucleons are too. When two atoms are not in the same table (they have different number of Nucleons) they also have to be linked by the Nucleons, sharing them among all the atoms in the compound so that all of them have the same amount of nucleons each, as they count even if they are shared. They work exactly as electrons would.   Nucleons are really big, and the bonds created between them can be extremely powerful. Energy from Black Holes comes from atoms integrating into each other because of this enormous amount of energy stored within Nucleons, and can only be liberated by extreme forces as the gravity of Black Holes. It is not official though, but it is speculated that the gravity of the Black Holes strips off the atoms themselves, making them fusion into each other.  

Main Usage

  Some research has been done to discover how to use this energy for the well being of the Galaxy, but after The Core was formed all research was cancelled because of ever growing fears surrounding the subject.

Author's Notes

In the Earth, Nucleon is the name for both Neutrons and Protons, as they are in the nucleus of the atom, and I discovered this a month after thinking of the name Nucleon. In Colossuss Galaxy, this word is used to describe a new sub-atomic particle. The official name for all sub-atomic atoms is therefore Nucleai, but is still a very bedated topic and can be changed in any moment.

A very unique idea. I quick example might be helpful to fully understand, especially for those who didn't take chemistry or physics. How has this impacted the world (universe)?

I have to work on this one, but basically it changed nothing but the modern sciences picture of the atom and chemical reactions. One example, being the formation of Burmenium Hydroxide. I still have to work on it, but basically, the only Nucleon Present in the reaction (the one that the Burmenium has) is shared between all atoms in the hydroxide, as they all must have the same number of Nucleons in order to be in the same compound.

Very interesting! I wonder why types of things might manifest from a reaction between elements on different periodic tables. Do you have a list of the elements on each periodic table, or a picture? Or is that something you're still working on?

Actually, that's a good question, and i haven't thought about it. It is still is WIP, and I work on it as I need it, but i know i will have to do it eventually.

I like the idea! It is a very unique take on an alternate Chemistry. Sadly though, it becomes very clear that you are not a native English speaker (don't worry, so am I). I wanna help you by giving you a polished version of one of your paragraphs:

The first table is the same that we use in the actual world, with some changes, but still recognizable. The second table only has 97 known natural elements, as they have all one Nucleon, but until 97 protons. The third table has 37 elements, with 2 Nucleons on all of the elements.
— Your version

Thanks for the commentary and help mate. I still have work to do in this article. I will absolutely use you version as mine in *mediocre* as it was one of my first articles and I wrote it very fast. ^^

Hmm... This is very interesting to consider. There would be lots of ramifications with regards to chemistry and physics, of course. I imagine that stars wouldn't function quite the same in this universe, so I'm very interested to learn more.

Since this post has got so many people giving me good feedback, I am thinking about finishing this hole chemistry thing soon. Hope to see ya around here when that happens mate ^^
