estrangement less penetration Nel more Reset Help 1. The 3s electrons penetrate the Core electrons and experience shielding than the 3p electrons. That is, is greater for 3p electrons, owing to the of the 3s electrons, so Z S (3p) is less than Z-S(3s).

Detailed calculations indicate that the effective nuclear charge is 5.6 + for the 3s electrons and 4.9 + for the 3p electrons. Why are the values for the 3s and 3p electrons different?
