Periodic Table Project - Radon

Creative Writing Piece:


Have you heard of the mysterious element #86, also known as Radon?

This is your chance to be one of the first people to learn about a very unique gas!

No matter what your profession, Radon will work for you!

If you are a geologist, Radon can be used to map underground geological faults!

If you are a meteorologist, you can use Radon to track the movement of continental land masses!

Or, if you are in the medical field, you can use Radon for radiography and radio therapy!

Radon is a very unique gas as it is in Period 6 the heaviest gas at 222 unified atomic mass units.

It also will not react with any other element because it is in group 18 which are the noble gases. They have very special electron configurations that do not react with any other elements. Radon’s electron configuration is [Xe] 6s^2 4f^14 5d^10 6p^6


Radon is radioactive,colorless, can cause lung cancer, and is an air pollutant. Exposure to alpha radiation emitters such as Radon may be harmful.
