Silver has always been a precious metal, used in photography, dentistry, currency, knives, forks, and spoons. Silver is used in x-rays, mirrors, and even medical bandages. In this book, we'll explore how silver was first discovered and used, and how it forms into compounds and alloys. Readers will discover where silver fits into the Periodic Table, and how silver plays a part in modern day electronics from cell phones to computers, but is no longer used in coins, given its expense. Interesting chemistry terms are accompanied by illustrations and photographs, allowing your readers to look at silver in a whole new way.
