Atomic Volume of Helium (He) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ...

Atoms have a theoretical atomic volume, even Helium. Ok, so what is the atomic radius of Helium?

Note: Learn more about the molar (or atomic) volume here.

In the case of Helium the atomic volume is 19.5 cm³/mol. There are interesting things about Helium that people don't know about...

Helium Data

Helium Atomic Volume

19.5 cm³/mol

State at 20 °C



Used in balloons, deep sea diving & welding. Also used in very low temperature research.

Atomic Mass

Found in natural gas deposits & in the air (5 parts per billion) Constantly lost to space; replenished by radioactive decay (alpha particles).


Light, odorless, colorless, tasteless inert gas. Second most abundant element in the universe. Sixth most abundant in the earth's atmosphere.

Are you having trouble understanding the basics of atomic elements? This video will walk you through:
  • What is an element
  • What is a substance
  • What Elements look like
  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances


When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Atomic Volume of Helium (He) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ..." Materials. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.

Colored Periodic Table

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to make your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like Helium atomic volume and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)

Download and enjoy this complete and colored periodic table for you to edit and enjoy. It's in an editable excel format or .ods (open).
