Transcript of Xenon Group: 15

Element name: Xenon

Chemical symbol: Xe

Period: 7
Date: 4/14/10
Group members: Olivia Bennett, Lauren Hoang, Tiffany Kim
Presenting Date: May 5, 2010
Element’s atomic number: 54

Atomic mass: 131.29 amu

Classification of the element: non-metal

Group of element: Noble gas
Xenon was discovered by Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers.

Xenon was discovered on July 12, 1898 in England.

Xenon was found by cooling air until it became a liquid. Then, by slowly heating up the air so that the other elements boil away; you will be left with a small amount of the liquid air, which Ramsay and Travers then separated into the noble gases. Chemical Properties

Very Dense – 0.005887 grams per cubic centimeter

forms compounds easily with fluorine

Able to form compounds like Xenon Difluoride, Xenon Hexafluroide, Xenon Oxytetrafluroide, Xenon Tetroxide, Xenon Trioxide. Those compounds have basically no use in life.

Natural Xenon is composed of 9 stable isotopes and 20 unstable isotopes
Physical Property
•Colorless gas

Some common uses for Xenon today are:


•flash cameras

•strobe lights

•movie projections

•car headlights

•bacterial lamps

Some interesting facts about Xenon are:
Xenon produces a blue glow when charged with electricity
It is not normally kept in a lab
It occurs in the Earth’s atmosphere in very small amounts. It was the first noble gas
Xenon originates from the Greek word Xenon which means stranger or xenos which means strange
