What are  the Properties of Neon? Definition of Neon
What is the definition of Neon? Neon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. Although neon gas is colorless it glows reddish orange in an electric discharge. Neon is the second-lightest noble gas, after Helium. In terms of occurrence Neon is a rare gas present in the atmosphere to an extremely limited extent. It is obtained as a by-product in the production of liquid air. The Physical and Chemical Properties are the characteristics of a substance, like Neon, which distinguishes it from any other substance.  Most common substances, like Neon, exist as States of Matter as solids, liquids, gases and plasma. Refer to the article on Neon Element for additional information and facts about this substance.

 

Neon Properties - What are the Physical Properties of Neon?
What are the Physical Properties of Neon? The Physical properties of Neon are the characteristics that can be observed without changing the substance into another substance. Physical properties are usually those that can be observed using our senses such as color, luster, freezing point, boiling point, melting point, density, hardness and odor. The Physical Properties of Neon are as follows:

Neon Properties - What are the Chemical Properties of Neon?
What are the Chemical Properties of Neon? They are the characteristics that determine how it will react with other substances or change from one substance to another. The better we know the nature of the substance the better we are able to understand it. Chemical properties are only observable during a chemical reaction. Reactions to substances may be brought about by changes brought about by burning, rusting, heating, exploding, tarnishing etc. The Chemical Properties of Neon are as follows:
