explain why 3d orbitals have poor shielding effect

Asked by advait2163 | 29th Mar, 2012, 08:56: PM

Expert Answer:

For a given shell (principal quantum number), the Zeff experienced by the orbital decreases with increase of azimuthal quantum number (l), that is, the s orbital will be more tightly bound to the nucleus than p orbital and p orbital in turn will be better tightly bound than the d orbital.Due to this 3d orbitals have poor shielding effect.
