Periodic Shifting Lock

I'm a delivery agent for UPS. On the package, I've been given instructions to drop off the package at a mail reception building accessible only through a "Periodic Shifting Lock," which I assume means that the password will change periodically. I've been given today's password, which is Scrutiny. On the keypad, however, there are only numbers! I've got to get in before it changes, I don't have another code.

Hint 1:

I need to think positive

Hint 2:

My Guess is

22 45 23 8 40

Because

Sc Ru Ti N Y are all elements on the periodic table (Atomic numbers 21, 44, 22, 7, 39) shift everything over one to make it one higher

• Nice job! You have mastered the Scrutinizing shift. Do you think I should make a sequel? Nov 20, 2019 at 2:03
• @CStafford-14 I thought it was quite clever, I'm sure a sequel would be as well :) Nov 20, 2019 at 14:11
