Methane, ethane, propane and butane are the alkanes that are gases at room temperature. These alkanes become gases at low temperatures due to the low number of carbon atoms in their structures. More »

Some examples of elements that turn to gases at or lower than room temperature include nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen and neon. Room temperature is usually defined as around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Any element with a boiling ... More »

The majority of metals listed on the period table of elements are solids at room temperature or 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit, with mercury being an exception since it solidifies at -38.2 degrees. Metals such as cesium, franci... More »

While both propane and butane are hydrocarbon gases, propane has the chemical formula C3H8, while butane has the chemical formula C4H10. Propane has a boiling point of approximately minus 44 degrees Fahrenheit, while but... More » Science Chemistry

The 13 elements that are room temperature gases are radon (Rn), xenon (Xe), krypton (Kr), argon (Ar), chlorine (Cl), neon (Ne), fluorine (F), oxygen (O), nitrogen (N), helium (He) and hydrogen (H). Most non-metals in the... More »

The density of butane is 2.48 grams per cubic centimeter when the substance is at standard temperature and pressure conditions. The density is determined by dividing the mass in grams by the volume in cubic centimeters. More » Science Chemistry

Bubbles in plain water come from dissolved gases in the water, such as nitrogen and oxygen, that escape when the temperature changes. Pressurized water pipes also contribute to bubbles in plain water because water holds ... More » Science Chemistry
