Silver: Precious Metal With The Highest Thermal And Electrical Conductivity...

Silver is generally described as a soft, white, lustrous metallic chemical element. It occurs naturally in its pure form, as an alloy with other metallic elements (especially gold), and in chlorargyrite and other minerals. As one of three coinage metals (the other two being copper and gold), silver is very malleable and ductile. Of the different metals, silver is known to have the highest thermal conductivity. Similarly of the different known elements, silver has the highest electrical conductivity. Provided below are some of the properties of this precious metal. General: • Chemical Symbol: Ag • Atomic Number: 47 • Category (as an element): Transition Metal • Group/ Period/ Block (in the Periodic Table): 11/ 5/ d • Atomic...
