thinkpad w510 has 4 memory slots and the maximum memory is 16 GB, but I'd like to know the maximum memory per slot.
Can I put 8 GB in one memory slot?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can install upto 32GB using 8 per slot, but for best performance, you need the chips in matched pairs and installed in the correct slots. The slots work in two separate pairs with one slot under keyboard and one on bottom of unit. It sounds strange to do it this way, but if you want the best mem performance, make sure to use the slots correctly.
ps. Ram is so cheap now, so I just got a matched set of 4x4GB. All four chips shipped were under $70.
