Silver has 61 neutrons, 47 protons and 47 electrons. The chemical symbol Ag represents silver, stemming from the Latin word "argentum." It has an atomic number of 47.Continue Reading
Civilizations have been utilizing silver for over 5,000 years. In nature, silver is found in both pure and ore form and combined with other ores, such as lead or gold.
Silver has a density of 10.5 grams per cubic centimeter and a melting point of 1763.474 degrees Fahrenheit. Silver also has good thermal and electrical conductivity, and it is malleable and ductile. Some of the uses for silver involve medicine, photography, silverware and jewelry.Learn more about Atoms & Molecules
The discoveries of electrons, protons and neutrons were made by J. J. Thomson, Ernest Rutherford and James Chadwick respectively. They were staggered over a period of 35 years.Full Answer >
The Bohr model for nitrogen has a central nucleus with seven neutrons and seven protons, a first energy ring with two electrons and a second energy ring with five electrons. A more detailed version shows two electrons in the s sub-shell of the second energy ring and three electrons in the p sub-shell. The Bohr model is used to demonstrate how the electrons line up around the nucleus of an atom.Full Answer >
Potassium has 19 protons, 20 neutrons and 19 electrons. The charges of the protons and electrons cancel each other out, so a neutral atom of potassium has a net charge of zero.Full Answer >
The Bohr model of carbon has a central nucleus containing six protons and six neutrons, encircled by an inner orbit of two electrons and an outer orbit of four electrons. The two orbits represent different energy levels and are at a set distance from one another and from the nucleus.Full Answer >
