Oxidation Number of Argon

The oxidation number of Argon (Ar) is 0 and its atomic number is 18. Argon is a noble gas and inert chemical substance. It is the third most common gas in the Earth's atmosphere and has approximately the same solubility in water as oxygen, and is 2.5 times more soluble in water than nitrogen. With its oxidation state of 0, it is isolated by the fractional distillation of liquid air.

It is used in gas-filled electric light bulbs, radio tubes. Argon gas condenses to a colourless liquid at −185.8° C and to a crystalline solid at −189.4° C. The outermost (valence) shell of argon has eight electrons, making it exceedingly stable and thus chemically inert. Argon atoms neither combine with one another, nor they combine with atoms of any other element.
