Problem: Rank the following elements by effective nuclear charge, Zeff, for a valence electron highest Zeff to lowest ZeffRb, In, Sb, Sn, Sr

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to rank the following elements by effective nuclear charge, Zeff, for a valence electron highest Zeff to lowest Zeff


Recall that the effective nuclear chargeZeff, is the force exerted by the nucleus onto an electron. We can calculate Zeff using Slater’s Rule.
