Orbital energy levels

Postby ShravanPatel2B » Sun Oct 20, 2019 10:13 pm

This post is in reference to question number 1E5 Part d.

Is it true that the Z eff e would be less for p orbital electrons because they experience more shielding by the s orbital electrons?

Yes. Electrons in the S orbital are more effective at shielding, so an electron in the p orbital would experience less Zeffe.
