The equation is Zeff= Z-S, where Z is the atomic number and S is the number of shielding electrons(non-valence electrons).

If the equation is Zeff= Z-S, and s is the number of non-valence electrons, does that mean that s is basically just the atomic number minus the valence electrons?
so is zeff= atomic number- (atomic number-valence e)?
