How to Make Pure Silver Shot for Electrolytic Silver Cell

TLDRLearn how to create pure silver shot for an electrolytic silver cell by melting and pouring silver crystal into water, allowing it to cool and dry, resulting in high-purity silver shot ready for use in the silver cell.

Key insights

💎Melted silver crystal is poured into water to create silver shot for the silver cell.

🔥A torch is used to melt the silver crystal in a crucible before pouring it into water.

The silver shot is dried and cooled before being used in the silver cell.

💧Distilled water is used to rinse the silver shot.

⚙️The silver shot is added to the silver cell where it dissolves and plates out as high-purity silver.

Q&A

Why is it necessary to pour the melted silver crystal into water?

Pouring the melted silver crystal into water creates silver shot, which is easier to handle and use in the silver cell.

What is the purity of the silver shot?

The silver shot is 98 to 99% pure.

Can I use tap water to rinse the silver shot?

It is recommended to use distilled water to rinse the silver shot to avoid contamination.

How long does it take for the silver to dissolve and plate out in the silver cell?

The time depends on various factors, but typically it takes several days for the silver to dissolve and plate out.

What is the purpose of the silver cell?

The silver cell is used for electrolytic refining of silver, resulting in high-purity silver deposits.
