In an organized essay, describe the physical and chemical characteristics of radon that make it a dangerous indoor air pollutant. Describe how radon enters a building and what its health effects are.
Used to treat cancer in the previous years, Radon is a colorless compound at standard pressure and temperature and is the densest gas of all. However, at temperatures below freezing point, it produces a brilliant yellow phosphorescence, and chemically unreactive but highly radioactive with a short half-life. In most cases radon is used in hydraulic research because of its nature of getting lost in the air. Additionally, its used in geologic research to track air masses. This paper endeavors to discus chemical property of radon and much more in details.
