We elaborate the uses of Radon and atomic properties with characteristics. Radon is a colorless chemical element with atomic number 86. Its symbol is Rn and it belongs to the group of noble gases and its usual state in nature is gaseous. Radon is located at position 86 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of radon and information about radon and other elements of the periodic table such as ununoctium, astatine, helium or boron. You will also learn what radon is for and you will know what its uses through its properties associated with radon such as its atomic number or the usual state in which radon can be found.
You will be able to see qualities of radon such as its melting and boiling point, its magnetic properties or what its chemical symbol is. Also, here you will find information about its atomic properties such as the distribution of electrons in radon atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
Noble gases like radon have little tendency to participate in chemical reactions. Radon, like the rest of the noble gases, has the following properties: It is colorless, odorless and shows very low chemical reactivity under normal conditions.
The state of radon in its natural form is gaseous (not magnetic). Radon is a colorless chemical element and belongs to the group of noble gases. The atomic number for radon is 86. The chemical symbol for radon is Rn. Radon’s melting point is 202 degrees Kelvin or -70.15 degrees Celsius or degrees Celsius. The boiling point of radon is 211 degrees Kelvin or -61.15 degrees Celsius or degrees Celsius.
Atomic properties of radon
The atomic mass of an element is determined by the total mass of neutrons and protons that can be found in a single atom belonging to this element. Regarding the position where to find radon within the periodic table of elements, radon is in group 18 and period 6. Radon has an atomic mass of 222 u.
The electron configuration of radon is [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s2 6p6. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element. The atomic radius or Bohr radius of radon is 120 pm and its covalent radius is 145 pm.
