The Basics of Nonmetals (2013)
by Allan B. Cobb
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 ...

There are also, mainly in the lower atmosphere, minute variable quantities of such gases as radon, actinon, thoron, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, methane and nitrous oxide. Ordinary (moist) air may be regarded as a mixture of dry air and water vapour. The concentration of water vapour in surface air varies from a small fraction of 1% to over 3%, in general the concentration decreases with increasing altitude. air conditioning Rarely can site selection, orientation, materials and ...
