Which of the following is chemically inert ( unreactive)?
Which of the following is chemically inert (unreactive)?
These are elements that does not react chemically, elements found in group 8 of the periodic table are enlisted here such as the xenon, argon, neon, krypton, Radon. Xenon, Helium
(C) neon (atomic number 10)
The atom that is chemically inert is Neon with an atomic number of 10.
An atom is chemically inert if it does not willingly take part in chemical reaction.
Atoms takes part in chemical reactions in order to attain a stable configuration as seen in the noble gases.
In the noble gases every enable level is completely filled with the appropriate number of electrons.
The noble gases are He, Ne, Ar, Kr, XeThese elements do not react with others. From the given option, Neon is a noble gas and therefore inert.
