The Noble Gases Representative Representative Elements Elements 2 Group 18The Noble Gases The Group18 elements are called the noble gases. This is because they rarely combine with other elements

and are found only as uncombined elements in nature. Their reactivity is very low. Representative Representative Elements Elements 2 Group 18The Noble Gases Helium is less

dense than air, so its great for all kinds of balloons. Helium balloons lift instruments into the upper atmosphere to measure atmospheric conditions. Representative Representative Elements Elements 2 Group 18The Noble Gases

Even though hydrogen is lighter than helium, helium is preferred for these purposes because helium will not burn. Representative Representative Elements Elements 2

Uses for the Noble Gases The neon lights you see in advertising signs can contain any of the noble gases, not just neon. Electricity is passed through the glass tubes that make up the sign. Representative Representative Elements Elements

2 Uses for the Noble Gases The electricity causes the gas to glow. Each noble gas produces a unique color. Helium glows yellow, neon glows red-orange, and argon produces a bluish-violet color. Representative Representative Elements

Elements 2 Uses for the Noble Gases Argon, the most abundant of the noble gases on Earth, was first found in 1894. Krypton is used with nitrogen in ordinary lightbulbs because these gases keep the glowing filament from burning out. Krypton lights are used to illuminate landing strips at airports, and xenon is used in strobe lights and was once used in photographic flash cubes.

Representative Representative Elements Elements 2 Uses for the Noble Gases At the bottom of the group is radon, a radioactive gas produced naturally as uranium decays in rocks and soil. If radon seeps into a home, the gas can be harmful because it continues to emit radiation. When people breathe the gas over a period

of time, it can cause lung cancer. Group 18/0 The Noble gases Some facts 1) All of the noble gases have a full outer shell, so they are very _____________ 2) They all have low melting and boiling points 3) They exist as single atoms rather then diatomic molecules 4) Helium is lighter then air and is used in balloons and airships (as well as for talking in a silly voice) 5) Argon is used in light bulbs

(because it is so unreactive) and argon , krypton and neon are used This powerpoint was kindly donated to www.worldofteaching.com http://www.worldofteaching.com is home to over a thousand powerpoints submitted by teachers.
