Why do I where a crown?

         Because I'm a Noble Gas! 

 

Status update:

10/9 - Went to a party last night and was the heavist one there.... maybe I should start losing weight!

10/10 - Going through River Trail students' lungs... some people can really breathe!

10/11 - Had some free time and decided to go tubing down the Chattahoochee River... having a great time!

10/13 -The Law of Conservation of matter says that matter can never be created of destroyed, and that it only changes its shape and form.   Although I can't react with any other element, if I could, the other element and I wouldn't be creating any new matter, but just changing the form of it.


Overview:

Hi, fellow elements! My name is Radon and I'm a noble gass with 86 protons, 86 electrons, and 136 neutrons. Some of my characteristics are I'm colorless, odorless, and radioactive. I'm formed from the decaing of radium in the Earth's crust. An interesting fact about me is that I'm used to predict earthquakes. 

Information: 

 

Relationship Status: 

Will always stand alone because I'm highly unreactive :(

Primary Relationship: 

 

Network: 

Non-Metal 

valence electrons:

8 valence electrons 

reactivity: Not very reactive 
state of matter:  Gas 
Location on Periodic Table: Group 18, Period 6 

Birthday: 

1898 

Hometown: 

Discovered in Halle, Germany by Friedrich Ernst Dorn 

Movies: 

The Noble Gas Club 

Activities & Interests:

         I love doing many activities in my free time! I don't really have any major biological role in our environment. Instead, I enjoy being on the earth's crust, and sometimes moving up into our atmosphere. Also, I love exposing myself to people to give them some kinds of lung cancer. I also like to help scientists to predict earthquakes.

         Another hobby I enjoy doing is learning about elements and how they react with each other. What I have learned is that there are four types of reactions, synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, and double replacement. Although it is highly unlikely for me to take place in any of these, I still enjoy learning about them, and I hope one day I can be a part of one too!

Because I can cause lung cancer, people doing what job must be extra careful about inhaling me?

I am an element that is in the air and everyone inhales me everyday. However, if you inhale too much of me, then you have a serious risk of getting lung cancer. Because I'm mostly released from the Earth's crust, poor construction, including cracks in walls and floors, can cause an excessive amount of me in the area that you are in. Also, people low to the ground, or even underground, have a big risk of inhaling too much of me. Miners have a serious threat of getting lung cancer. When I am inhaled, my radioactive particles can damage people's lung cells. Much exposure to me can lead to cancer in the lungs. To ensure that people are not taking in too much of me in, I suggest making sure the base of your house, school, ect. are strong to minimize me being inhaled too much.

You are soooooooooo lucky that you are a noble gas and that gross guys don't want to react with you all the time! It must be nice to be left alone for once.

It has its pros and cons.... It must be nice though, people are dying to be with you!
