Argon Keylor Piers

Argon is used in incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs. It is also used for welding.

Argon has a melting point of 83.80 K, -189.35*C -308.83*F. It also has a boiling point of 87.30 K, -185.85*C -302.53*F.

Because argon is a noble gas, it is not shown on Mohs scale.

On August 13, 1894, Lord Rayleigh and William Ramsey discovered argon.

Argon is named after the Greek word argos. Argos in Greek means lazy.

In 1904, both men were awarded Nobel Prize. William Ramsey won in Chemistry, and Lord Rayleigh won in Physics.
