Silver Element in Periodic Table | Atomic Number Atomic Mass

Silver

Silver Element:

Silver is a chemical element and it is a member of group 11 and period 5 in the periodic table. The atomic number of silver is 47 and it is indicated by symbol is Ag. Ag is a soft, white, lustrous transition metal. It has the highest thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and reflectivity. Most Ag is produced as a byproduct of gold, copper, lead and zinc refining.  107Ag and 109Ag are naturally occurring stable isotopes of Ag.

Uses of Silver Of Silver Element:

  • Silver is used to make mirrors, dental alloys, solder and brazing alloys, batteries and electrical contacts. Silver paints are used for making printed circuits.
  • An alloy of silver and copper is used for jewellery and silverware.
  • Silver iodide is used in artificial rain making to seed clouds.
  • Ag is used in superior mirror production
  • Ag nitrate is used in the photographic industry
