Transcript of Element Neon

By:Saintaneria Blaise The Element Neon The Element's Name & Origin Resources I Used To find Research on Neon My elements name that I chose was
neon and where it originated from was,
from the Greek word neon meaning new. Neon doesn't have a color. Neon's Color Symbol: Ne
Atomic Number: 10
Atomic Mass: 20.1797 Neon's Symbol, Atomic Number,& Atomic Mass No, its not a ductility Is Neon A Ductility? Http://www.ehow.com/about 5043120 history-neon-lighting.html
Neon's Potential Hazards or Compound Hazards No its not hazardous or its compounds because it’s a noble gas Neon's Modern & Historical Uses for the Element Neon's Common Compounds it Forms Fluorine Neon's Group, Group number, & Period Number Group: Noble Gases
Group Number: 18
Period Number: 2 Neon's Electron Configuration & Number of Valence Electron Electron Configuration: He 2s2 2p6
Number of Valence Electron: 8 Neon's Texture Neon doesn't have a texture because its apart of the atmosphere. Does Neon Have the Ability to Conduct Electricity Yes. When neon conducts electricity,
it turns a distinctive reddish orange
color. Neon's Density Density: 0.0009 g/cm3 Neon's State at Room Temperature Gas Luster No. Metals are lustrous. Neon is an inert gas and does not have this property Malleability No its not malleable Neon's Boiling Point -246.1C, -27.049994K Neon's Melting Point -248.6C, -24.549994K When Neon Was Discovered •Neon was discovered in 1898 by Scottish chemist William Ramsay and English chemist Morris Travers. It was discovered when Ramsay cooled a sample of the atmosphere until it became liquid. Cleverly, he then boiled the liquid and captured the gases as the liquid boiled. He discovered three different gases; krypton, xenon and neon. Neon emerged as the lighting medium of choice during the 1930s through the 1950s, as manufacturing companies produced signage for businesses of all sizes. With the introduction of plastics, glass declined in popularity due to the expense of hand bending the glass and filling it with gas and also to the increased chance of damage for outdoor signs exposed to the elements.Used in making neon advertising signs, this accounts for its largest use. Used to make high-voltage indicators, lightning arrestors, wave meter tubes, and TV tubes. Neon and helium are used in making gas lasers. Liquid neon is an economical cryogenic refrigerant. . It has over 40 times more refrigerating capacity per unit volume than liquid helium and more than three times that of liquid hydrogen.It is compact, inert, and less expensive than helium when it meets refrigeration requirements
