Silver is a soft, lustrous element that belongs to the transition group of metals on the periodic table. It has a melting point of 962°C, a density of 10.5 g/cc, and vapor pressure of 10-4 Torr at 1,105°C. Silver has been used since ancient times in countless products. It is ductile, malleable, and the most electrically conductive of all metals. It is considered a precious metal and can be found in jewelry, solders, paints, and mirrors. It is evaporated under vacuum for the production of semiconductors, sensors, fuel cells, and optical coating.
