Silver is a chemical substance and its symbol is Ag. The atomic number and atomic mas of silver are 47 and 108 respectively. Silver is a transition metal and present in the d-block of periodic table. Silver metal is placed in 11th group and 5th period of the periodic table. There are 47 electrons present in an tom of silver. The number of electrons per shell are 2, 8, 18, 18, 1. The electronic configuration of a silver atom is 4d10 5s1. The electronic configuration of silver shows that silver has only one atom in valence shell. Moreover, silver atom loses valence electron to become an ion.

Actually the electron configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 .........5s2 4d10 so there would be 2 ELECTRONS in the valence shell

Depending on how you look at it there could be 2 or one.  5s24d9 is how its written.  It depends on how you look at it.  If you are working with just shells or orbitals the answer is 1.  If you are working with sub orbital the answer is 2.  But I'm a little confused on why.
