Radon-219 is derived from actinium and is called actinon. It, too, emits alpha particles and has a half-life of 3.96 seconds. Radon is usually found in soil, ground- water, and caves because these areas trap the radon. The amount of radon present depends on the amount of radioactive minerals in the ground. When in contact with the atmosphere, radon spreads out rapidly. In some areas, buildings can actu- ally trap the radon from the soil, and high concentrations build up in basements ...
