argon definition

  • noun:
    • A colorless, odorless, inert gaseous element constituting about one per cent of world's environment, that it's commercially gotten by fractionation to be used in electric light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, and radio machine pipes and also as an inert gasoline shield in arc welding. Atomic number 18; atomic fat 39.948; melting point -189.3°C; boiling-point -185.9°C. See Dining Table at element.
    • A chemical element (image Ar) with an atomic number of 18.
    • A colorless, odorless gasoline happening floating around (that it constitutes 0.93 % by amount), in volcanic fumes, etc.; -- so named due to its inertness by Rayleigh and Ramsay, whom prepared and examined it in 1894-95. Logo, A; at. wt., 39.9. Argon is condensible to a colorless liquid boiling at -186.1° C. and also to a solid melting at -189.6° C. It's a characteristic spectrum. No substances of it tend to be understood, but there is however physical evidence that its molecule is monatomic. Weight of one liter at 0° C. and 760 mm., 1.7828 g.
    • A name provided by Lord Rayleigh and Professor William Ramsay to a different constituent associated with environment found by them in 1894. It's an inodorous fuel, singularly inert chemically.
    • A gaseous factor having, in the pure condition as a gas, a density of 19.96 (H=1) and an atomic weight of 39.6.
    • a colorless and odorless inert gasoline; one of several six inert fumes; comprises more or less 1per cent associated with earth's environment
    • A colorless, odorless, inert gaseous factor constituting around one per cent of world's environment, from where it's commercially acquired by fractionation for use in electric bulbs, fluorescent tubes, and radio cleaner pipes and as an inert gas guard in arc welding. Atomic quantity 18; atomic fat 39.948; melting point -189.3°C; boiling-point -185.9°C. See Table at factor.
    • A chemical factor (symbolization Ar) with an atomic amount of 18.
    • A colorless, odorless gasoline occurring floating around (that it constitutes 0.93 percent by amount), in volcanic gases, etc.; -- so-named because of its inertness by Rayleigh and Ramsay, who ready and examined it in 1894-95. Symbol, A; at. wt., 39.9. Argon is condensible to a colorless fluid boiling at -186.1° C. and a solid melting at -189.6° C. It's a characteristic range. No substances from it are understood, but there is physical proof that its molecule is monatomic. Body weight of just one liter at 0° C. and 760 mm., 1.7828 g.
    • A name written by Lord Rayleigh and Professor William Ramsay to a different constituent of this environment discovered by them in 1894. It is an inodorous gasoline, singularly inert chemically.
    • A gaseous element having, into the pure condition as a gas, a density of 19.96 (H=1) and an atomic weight of 39.6.
    • a colorless and odorless inert fuel; the six inert fumes; comprises more or less 1percent of earth's atmosphere
