Element Project: Project Krypton
Transcript of Element Project: Project Krypton
Its used in some glow sticks!
Used with other gases to make it glow!
No... this will not kill our beloved superman!
State of matter at room temperature:
How reactive is it: Purple Gas 0.003733 grams per cubic centimeter 115.79 K/-157.36°C/-251.25°F 119.93 K/-153.22°C/-243.80°F Odorless Nonflammable It is a gas Reactive to only gases Periodic Table Information Type of Element:
Name of family the element belongs to: Noble Gases 18 36 Metal 83.80 4 History: capabilities: Impact: was discovered on May 30, 1898
Sir William Ramsay, a Scottish chemist, and Morris M. Travers, an English chemist
Discovered when studying liquified air
Discovered at England
Ramsay had already discovered helium and argon.
Was named Krypton after the Greek word Kryptos meaning hidden, Because it was hidden by another element It is found in small rare amounts around the atmosphere
Obtained and separated from other chemicals by fractional distillation of liquid air
Can be made into some compounds, most commonly Krypton difluoride (KrF2)
When used On the Vickers scale Krypton has a hardness of 340. The discovery of Krypton has led up to the creation of many light bulbs, especially florescent lightbulbs which save countless amounts of energy.
We use their glow for "neon" colored signs
The discovery of Krypton lead up to the discovery of flash photography.
it is also used as a low level radiation source. The uses of Krypton Where do you see Krypton in everyday life? High tech cameras use Krypton, so if you have seen a movie you have seen film which even a small percentage of it be used
Each year, a building full of Krypton florescent lights saves the building 25% of energy.
There is a chance that your own classroom uses light with Krypton. Where do you "bump into" this element? You have seen at least one florescent light, neon sign, or even a flashlight in your life and there is a high chance it had at least a small amount of Krypton in it.
Krypton is a energy saver for light, just think of anything like it and Krypton may be used for it. What common products and commercial products are made by it? Light bulbs, flashlights, and some radiation uses are some commercial products made by it.
Krypton can be made to only some compounds, ones like Krypton Difloride. These do not change the element much. Gagnon, Steve. "The Element Krypton." It's Elemental -. Jeffeson Lab, 5 May 2005.
