Neon is a chemical element wi seembol Ne an atomic nummer 10. It is in group 18 (noble gases) o the periodic table. Neon is a colourless, odorless, inert monatomic gas unner staundart condeetions, wi aboot twa-thirds the density o air. It wis discovered (alang wi krypton an xenon) in 1898 as ane o the three residual rare inert elements remainin in dry air, efter nitrogen, oxygen, argon an carbon dioxide are removed. Neon wis the seicont o these three rare gases tae be discovered, an wis immediately recognized as a new element frae its bricht reid emission spectrum. The name neon is derived frae the Greek wird, νέον, neuter singular furm o νέος [neos], meanin new. Neon is chemically inert an furms na uncharged chemical compoonds.
