Re: real quick summary

​Silver atoms

​A single silver atom can be considered to be an atomic sized particle of metallic silver. It is the smallest size of silver matter that exists. The diameter of a single silver atom is 0.288 nm.

While it is theoretically possible to have a particle of metallic silver that consists of a single atom, in practice particles are much larger and consist of many atoms.

Just for reference, a particle one nanometer in diameter would consist of 31 silver atoms, and a 5 nm diameter particle would be about 3900 atoms while a 20 nm diameter particle would contain about 250,000 silver atoms.

​The particle size typically observed in Colloidal Silver has been measured in the range of 5 to 200 nanometers. Such measurements are performed using a Photon Correlation Spectrometer (PCS) that can measure down to 1 nm. In our laboratory a Malvern Zetasizer 3000HS is used to make such measurements.
