Reactivity: Xenon is nonreactive
Man made or Natural: It's a natural gas
Acid or Base: it's neither, it's a noble gas
Crystal Structure: Cubic
Xenon is a colorless, tasteless, and harmless gas, but their are some toxic compounds. Uses of Xenon Xenon is a noble gas, but it is surprisingly used in many things today. Xenon is used for:
Photographic flashes
High pressure arc lamps for motion picture projection and to produce UV light
Instruments for radiation detection (neutron and X-ray counters and bubble chambers)
It's used in medicine as a general anesthetic and for medical imaging
Modern ion thrusters for space travel
Modern day headlights for cars Xenon is in Group 18 (VIIIA) and is a noble gas. The number of Protons in a xenon atom is 54, number of Electrons is 54, and the number of neutrons is 77.
