Silver (Ag) facts.
Silver or Ag as it is abbreviated, has the atomic number of 47. Silver lies in family 2, and row 5. It has one valence electron which makes silver very reactive since it wants to get rid of that electron. Silver will most likely lose its one valence electron when it reacts with another element, so it will become a positive ion. Silver is a transition metal and it has the highest electrical and thermal conductivities of all the metals. Silver is also very malleable and ductile. Silver is solid at room temperature and has a boiling point of 2,162°c. It has an atomic radius of 144 pm and an atomic weight of about 108. Silver also has 61 neutrons, 47 electrons (atomic number), and 47 protons.
