1 What is Xenon? By John Cohee

2 What Are Elements? Definition: A specific type of atom. I will be presenting the structure, history, and importance of Xenon

3 Xenons Atom Nucleus= Electrons = Shells = P=54 N=77

4 What is the Structure of Xenon? Description: xenon is a colorless and odorless gas Number of Protons, Electrons, Neutrons: P= 54, E= 54, N= 77 Atomic weight: Atomic number: 54 Symbol: Xe

5 What is the History of Xenon? Xenon was discovered by 2 British chemists when they evaporated liquid air to find out what the Earths atmosphere was made of Discovered by British chemists Sir William Ramsey and Morris W. Travers Xenon was discovered in 1898

6 Why is Xenon Important? Some uses for xenon now are… Imax movie projectors Lasers Bactericidal lamps Deep sea observation lights Electron tubes Ion engines Probes Strobe lights

7 Interesting Facts Xenons symbol is Xe It is a noble gas It is a colorless, odorless gas and it is not very reactive It is used for many types of powerful lamps and lights The Earths atmosphere is % Xenon

8 Conclusion Xenon is a noble gas It is colorless and odorless It has a full outer electron shell and it is not very reactive Xenon was discovered in 1898 It is used to make very bright lights and lamps The Earths atmosphere is % Xenon
