You are given a sample of a silvery metal. What information could you use to prove the metal is silver?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

From the given information, the metal is Silver, has to be proved.

Concept introduction:

Density:

Density can be defined as property that links mass of an object to its volume.  It derived quantity and its unit is gml-1 for liquids and gcm-3 for solid.  The density of material can be calculated with the help of formula,

  Density=Mass(g)Volume(mlorcm3)

Melting point: The temperature at which the solid substance starts melting.

Explanation

By identifying, the density of the silver metal is 10.5g/cm3 which is heavy, melting point of silver is 961oC
