Which gas makes up most of the air and does not react very much and a burning splint will go out in this gas?
Nitrogen gas makes up most of the atmosphere. However carbon dioxide extinguishes a burning splint and is found in a small amount in the atmosphere Nitrogen gas. It is an inert gas that makes up over 70% of the Earth's atmosphere. ...
The most common inert gas in the atmosphere?
The bonds between two atoms of nitrogen (78% of the atmosphere) in the N2 molecule make it inert for many purposes. However under high heat (lightning for example) it reacts with oxygen to form nitrogen compounds. Argon at 1% of the atmosphere is a noble gas and is inert under all atmospheric conditions. ...
