  1. What is Neon ? By: Mike Bedard

  2. What are Elements? • Definition: a specific type of atom. • I will be presenting the structure, history, and importance of Neon.

  3. Neon’s Atom Shell K Nucleus Electrons P=10 N=10 Shell L

  4. What is the Structure of Neon? • Odorless, colorless, gas • 10 protons(+), 10 neutrons, 10 electrons(-) • Atomic mass is 20.1797 amu • Neon’s atomic number is 10 • Atomic symbol is Ne • Neon’s density is 0.0008999 grams per cubic centimeter • Part of the Noble Gas group

  5. What is the History of Neon? • Discovered in 1898 • Found in the atmosphere by Sir William Ramsay and Morris W. Travers • Discovered through the study of liquefied air • George Claude created the first neon lamp in 1910

  6. Why is Neon Important? • Lamps • Luminous sign tubes • Voltage detectors • TV tubes • Helium-neon lasers • Liquid form is used as a cryogenic refrigerant

  7. Interesting Facts • William Ramsay and Morris Travers also discovered other elements • Neon is the 4th most abundant element in the universe • Neon gives off intense red light when heated

  8. Conclusion I learned… • 10 protons • 10 electrons • 10 neutrons • 4th most abundant element in the universe • Discovered in 1898 • Used in voltage detectors
