The atomic weight of a reference sample of silver was measured at NIST using two nearly identical mass spectrometers. This project was undertaken in conjunction with the redetermination of the Faraday constant. Accurate knowledge of the atomic weight of silver, besides being important in its own right, was needed to check the consistency of different computations of the Faraday constant which theoretically should yield identical results. The dataset given here is a balanced subset of the original data which was used to determine the atomic weight of silver.
