A percentile rank for the political stability of the country with the largest reserves, derived from World Bank governance indicators. Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy needed to change the temperature of a kilogram of a substance by 1 K. A measure of the stiffness of a substance. It provides a measure of how difficult it is to extend a material, with a value given by the ratio of tensile strength to tensile strain.
A measure of how difficult it is to deform a material. It is given by the ratio of the shear stress to the shear strain. A measure of how difficult it is to compress a substance. It is given by the ratio of the pressure on a body to the fractional decrease in volume. A measure of the propensity of a substance to evaporate. It is defined as the equilibrium pressure exerted by the gas produced above a substance in a closed system.

Glossary Image explanation Murray Robertson is the artist behind the images which make up Visual Elements. Appearance The description of the element in its natural form. Biological role The role of the element in humans, animals and plants. Natural abundance Where the element is most commonly found in nature, and how it is sourced commercially.
This is usually a tube filled with xenon gas, with electrodes at each end and a metal trigger plate at the middle of the tube. A colourless, odourless gas. It is very unreactive. Xenon is used in certain specialised light sources. It produces a beautiful blue glow when excited by an electrical discharge.
Xenon lamps have applications as high-speed electronic flash bulbs used by photographers, sunbed lamps and bactericidal lamps used in food preparation and processing.
Xenon lamps are also used in ruby lasers. Xenon ion propulsion systems are used by several satellites to keep them in orbit, and in some other spacecraft. Xenon difluoride is used to etch silicon microprocessors. It is also used in the manufacture of 5-fluorouracil, a drug used to treat certain types of cancer. Xenon has no known biological role.
It is not itself toxic, but its compounds are highly toxic because they are strong oxidising agents. Xenon is present in the atmosphere at a concentration of 0. It can also be found in the gases that evolve from certain mineral springs.
It is obtained commercially by extraction from liquid air. Help text not available for this section currently. Elements and Periodic Table History. They had already extracted neon, argon, and krypton from liquid air, and wondered if it contained other gases. The wealthy industrialist Ludwig Mond gave them a new liquid-air machine and they used it to extract more of the rare gas krypton.
By repeatedly distilling this, they eventually isolated a heavier gas, and when they examined this in a vacuum tube it gave a beautiful blue glow. They called the new gas xenon.
It was this gas which Neil Bartlett eventually showed was not inert by making a fluorine derivative in So far more than xenon compounds have been made.
