Properties of gases

Oxygen Gas

Oxygen: Oxygen is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gaseous element that constitutes 21 percent of the atmosphere. A chemical element with symbol O, the atomic number of oxygen is 8. Oxygen exists in all three forms - liquid, solid, and gas. However, the liquid and solid forms have color, which is blue, but gas neither has color nor has odor and taste.

To change from a gas to a liquid, oxygen requires a temperature of 182.96°C, and on the other hand, at a temperature of -218.4°C, it can be solidified or frozen.

Physical Properties of Oxygen
Color Colorless
Odor Oxygen is an odorless gas
Taste A tasteless gas
Conductivity A poor conductor of heat and electricity
Solubility Slightly soluble in water, alcohol and some other common liquids
Density It is denser than air. The density of oxygen is 1.429 grams per liter
Viscosity Resistance to flow - stickiness. The viscosity is 189 millipoises (at 0°C).

Nitrogen Gas

Nitrogen: Nitrogen, symbol N, is the chemical element of atomic number 7. It is a common normally colorless, odorless, tasteless and mostly diatomic non-metal gas. The element is primarily found as the gas molecule; it comprises of about 78% of Earth's atmosphere. Scottish physician Daniel Rutherford discovered that nitrogen is separable component of air in 1772.

To change from a gas to a liquid, oxygen requires a temperature of 182.96°C, and on the other hand, at a temperature of -218.4°C, it can be solidified or frozen.
