What is the mass number of xenon?
What are the important uses of xenon?
- used in making electron tubes,stroboscopic lamps,bactericidal lamps,and lamps used to excite ruby lasers for generating coherent light
- used in the atomic energy field in bubble chambers,probes,and other applications where its high molecular weight is of value
- potentially useful as a gas for ion engines
What is the classification of xenon?
- Xenon is classified as an element in the 'Noble Gases' section which can be located in group 18 of the Periodic Table . The term 'Noble gas' derives from the Old High German word Edelgas from 'edili' meaning "noble". The name 'noble gases' is an allusion to the old, similarly termed 'Noble Metals'.
What is the electronegativity of xenon?
- The electronegativity of Xenon is: χ = 2.6. In general, an atom’s electronegativity is affected by both its atomic number and the distance at which its valence electrons reside from the charged nucleus. The higher the associated electronegativity number, the more an element or compound attracts electrons towards it.
