Personal Perspective

At market’s end today (1/27/10), the price of gold was valued at $1,086.50 per oz. Silver, on the other hand, stood at a significantly lower $16.43 per oz.

Want to know the difference between these two commodities? The nucleus of one atom of gold contains 79 protons while the nucleus of one atom of silver holds 47.

(The radius of a proton is roughly 10-15 m)
