Chemical properties – Sodium symbol, electronic configuration, density


Sodium

Description:

Sodium is a soft, silvery-white, highly reactive metal and is a member of the alkali metals within group 1.It is an essential element for all animal life and for some plant species. In animals, sodium ions are used in opposition to potassium ions, to allow the organism to build up an electrostatic charge on cell membranes, and thus allow transmission of nerve impulses when the charge is allowed to dissipate by a moving wave of voltage change.

Chemical properties – Neon symbol, electronic configuration, density


Neon

Description:

Neon is a inert noble gas under standard conditions. It is commercially extracted from air, in which it is found in trace amounts. It is often used in signs and produces an unmistakable bright reddish-orange light. It is used in vacuum tubes, high-voltage indicators, lightning arrestors, wave meter tubes, television tubes, and helium-neon lasers.
