Surprising and Interesting facts

ARGON comes from the Greek word for inactive, which is argos.
Henry Cavendish suspected argon was present in the air in 1785,
but it was later discovered by a Scottish chemist named Sir William Ramsay,
and Lord Rayleigh, an English chemist, in 1894[1] .
It's colorless, odorless, and tasteless in the gaseous and liquid forms .
It produces a pale blue-violet light when it is electrically excited .
It’s the third most abundant gas, and it takes up 0.93% of the earth’s atmosphere .
About 1.6% of Mars’s atmosphere contains argon.
Argon is not found in any compounds.
750.000 tons of argon are produced every year.
It is approximately 1.4 times as heavy as air.Argon is created when potassium in the earth’s crust decays[2] .

Argon does not need to form bonds because it already has a full octet.
It has 8 valence electrons already, so it doesn’t need to bond to form a full outer shell.

Now, TEST YOURSELF!
If you really want to buy some argon, you have to know the basics.
So take this short quiz below to see what you know!



Utility of Element

Argon does not react with any other element because it is a noble gas. This gives it various unique uses.
  • used in lighting because it does not react with the filament in a lightbulb
  • used as an inert gas shield in arc welding and cutting
  • non-reactive blanket in the manufacturing of titanium
  • protective element for growing silicon and germanium crystals
  • used for ice coring
  • used for ground water dating
  • used in SCUBA diving to inflate the drysuit
  • used in the gap between panes of glass to provide better insulation
  • used in the tyre of luxury cars
  • in plasma globes
  • in lasers
  • in glow tubes[4]

Comparison to Similar Elements

Argon is similar to helium, neon, krypton, and xenon, which are the other noble gases.
They are all colorless, odorless, and have a low chemical reactivity.
Radon is also a noble gas, but it is radioactive.
Argon's boiling point is very similar to oxygen's[5] .
Argon is two and a half more times soluable in water than in nitrogen.



Pricing

Argon costs fifty cents for every one-hundred grams.
If you buy 500 grams or more, we'll give you a special ONE TIME OFFER; each one-hundred grams will be only 38 cents!
