  Thank you for your question, Kathy.  The silver atom has 5 electron 
orbits (energy levels) with a total of 47 electrons.  Beginning with the 
orbit closest to the nucleus and working outward, the number of electrons 
per orbit should be:  2, 8, 18, 18, 1.  Of course, the nucleus contains 47 
protons and 61 neutrons (for purposes of this model).
