A micro-scale experiment explaining some principles related to the refining process of silver. Some Questions and answers: -Why use such a small container? =Because the larger the container the more solution of silver nitrate is required, which means that more of your silver is trapped in there. -What are those small spots on your skin? =As you can imagine, it is due to silver nitrate splashes that landed on it. It is not so tragic, I tell everyone that I refilled a printer ink cartridge. -Dude, how can you know that the silver content is 70% ? =Well, I know what went into that jar, that’s why. -Could you build a much better power supply? Theoretically I could, out of two transformers. But I have not found the right types yet. Actually anything that can supply (DC current) a voltage between 1,5 and 3,5 V and lots of Amps (goes anywhere from 10A to 800A) is suited for the job. Plating rectifiers do the job, but they cost a lot. -Didn’t your @1,5V time lapse take too long for producing almost nothing? =The batteries were already a bit consumed, I didn’t measure it but I guess the current was much smaller than 0,28A. Theoretically each battery can supply at least 2000mAh which means that each battery can plate out 8048g of pure silver. -70% of 25g makes 17,5g, you only got 16,9g of fine silver, where is the rest of it? =The rest of the silver is in the first solution where I left the copper tube in, a small part is in the electrolyte solution because it had a bit of free
