The Element Neon

The best element out there!

History!

Neon was discovered Sir William Ramsay, Morris W. Travers in 1898 in London to be exact. It also comes from the Greek word ”new”. That's only some information about neon.

And now it's uses!

Neon is only one of 65,000 inside of our atmosphere. I should have started saying that it really isn't used in many things but in the atmosphere. It also can be used inside of signs to make it bright and colorful. Finally its also used in some light bulbs, the neon usually makes the light brighter.

Now for me to decribe to you, neon.

It is inert because it is in group 18 of the periodic table. Neon usually glows orange-red when at room temperature. It won't always be orange-red it could be green, purple and pretty much any color!

Biology (in humans)

Neon is not really located in the human body and it really does not have any biological uses.

Geography (in the universe)

It, just like in its uses it is only one part in 65,000 inside of our atmosphere.

Properties

Its density is 1444 kg, the solid state structure of neon is cubic close-packed, and finally Neon also has 10 electrons total floating inside of the clouds outside the nucleus. Meaning its atomic number is 10.

And Finally... Iteresting facts!

“Liquid neon has over 40 times more refrigerating capacity than liquid helium, and more than 3 times that of liquid hydrogen” as said in the article inside of http://www.webelements.com . Ne-21 is used to study quantum physics (Ne-21 is an isotope of Neon). In my opinion Neon is one of the most interesting elements of them all.
