Asked in Chemistry, Periodic Table
Elements in group 18 are very nonreactive .They are said to be inert.We call these the?
The Inert or "Noble" gasses. Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, and Radon are the inert gasses. The "inert" gas Radon is chemically inert, but is radioactive. Radon has a half-life of four days. Because of its radioactivity, radon is hazardous when concentrated. Where the soil contains trace amounts of radium, thorium and uranium, basements may tend to harbor unsafe concentrations of Radon gas; the radioactivity being breathed into the lungs increased the risk of lung cancer. Inexpensive radon detectors can let you know if...
Asked in Radon
Are the gases including helium neon argon krypton xenon and radon stable?
These are the noble or inert gases, and they are all stable except for radon. Radon has no stable isotopes. ...
What elements are not reactive?
All of the elements in Group 18(0) - Inert Gases (exc. Radon) are highly unreactive. The Inert Gases are situated on the far right hand side of the Periodic Table. The elements in the Inert Gases group are : Helium Neon Argon Krypton Xenon Radon ...
Asked in Chemistry
What are elements that rarely combine with other elements called?
The Inert Gases of Group 0 rarely combine with other elements as they are (exc. Radon) extremely unreactive. The Inert Gases are: Helium Neon Argon Krypton Xenon (Radon) ...
