Argon is an Inert Gas. A gas with very little reactivity to other compounds is said to be inert. Nonreactive is the definition of inert. Noble gases, which are classified in group 18 of the periodic table, are also referred to as inert gases. Helium, neon, argon, krypton, radon, and xenon are examples of inert gases.

What is Inert Gas?

Inert gases are special kind of gases that do not reacts during chemical reactions. Nitrogen is an inert gas that can be used for a variety of tasks related to the production, handling, and transportation of chemicals. Being non-reactive, nitrogen is great for blanketing and is frequently used as a purging gas.

Noble gases do not react with other elements to create compounds because their valence shells are fully occupied. Noble gases are hence inert chemically. Therefore, because they are reluctant to interact with other elements to create compounds, noble gases are also known as inert gases. Because it is an inert gas, it does not interact with other compounds.


Which of the following is an Inert Gas? (A) Hydrogen (B) Nitrogen (C) Oxygen (D) Argon

An example of Inert Gas is Argon. An inert gas reacts with other substances very little. Inertness is defined as being non-reactive. Argon is a gas that is majorly used to fill in electric bulbs. Due to this, the life of electric bulbs increases.
