These gases agree with argon in respect of the ratio of the specific heats and in being non-oxidizable under the electric spark.
The investigation of argon led to the discovery of some of the others.
Joining forces with Ramsay, the observed discrepancies were hunted down, and in 1894 the discovery of argon was announced.
I could scarce believe my eyes when she appeared as the "wife of argon."
The oxygen or nitrogen atom never rests until it has sought out a fellow, but the argon atom declines all fellowship.

Some may already know that there is at least a third thing, argon.
argon, the eldest son of Annir, tilted with him and overthrew him.
argon, ar′gon, n. a constituent element of our atmosphere, discovered in 1894 by Rayleigh and Ramsay.
argon ar·gon (är'gŏn')
A colorless, inert gaseous element constituting [approx] one percent of Earth's atmosphere, used in electric bulbs and fluorescent tubes and as an inert gas shield in arc welding. Atomic number 18; atomic weight 39.948; melting point -189.3°C; boiling point -185.9°C.
A colorless, odorless element in the noble gas group. Argon makes up about one percent of the atmosphere. It is used in electric light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, and radio vacuum tubes. Atomic number 18; atomic weight 39.948; melting point -189.2°C; boiling point -185.7°C. See Periodic Table.
