1. Oganesson: Element Uses & Facts
One of the superheavy elements, oganesson is a noble gas and an artificially produced element that was discovered in the early 2000s. This details some facts and uses of oganesson.
2. What Is Helium? - Definition & Concept
In this lesson, explore how the gas helium was discovered and learn about its properties. Learn how helium is used every day, from inflating party balloons to propelling spacecraft.
3. What is Argon? - Facts, Properties & Uses
Argon is abundant in our atmosphere but evaded discovery until the late 1800s. In this lesson, we will look at how argon was discovered, its properties and how we use it. A quiz will test our knowledge.
4. The Element Neon: History, Facts & Uses
Neon signs have been iconic in America since the 1920's and are still common today. In this lesson, we will find out how neon was discovered and why it has been so important to us.
5. What is Radon? - Definition, Facts & Effects
A noble gas that is radioactive and a leading cause of lung cancer, radon is a gas to be on the lookout for. Want to understand how to spot radon? Continue reading to learn about radon, its facts, and effects.
6. The Element Krypton: History, Facts, Uses & Properties
Krypton is an element on the periodic table and belongs to the family of unreactive noble gases. Learn about this gaseous element's history, uses and chemical properties, as well as some fascinating facts.
7. What is Xenon? - Definition, Uses & Facts
Xenon is an element that exists as a gas at most temperatures and is not very reactive. This lesson looks at some general information about xenon, as well as some of its useful applications.
