Xenon is a chemical element wi the seembol Xe an atomic nummer 54. It is a colourless, hivy, odorless noble gas, that occurs in the Yird's atmosphere in trace amoonts.[8] Altho generally unreactive, xenon can unnergo a few chemical reactions sic as the furmation o xenon hexafluoroplatinate, the first noble gas compound tae be synthesized.[9][10][11]
