The Bromine atom possesses 35 electrons.It contains 6 electrons in 2p orbitals,6 electrons in 3p orbital and 5 electrons in 4p orbital.Which of these experiences the lowest effective nuclear charge?Please explain.

Expert Answer:

Of all these electrons 5 electrons in 4p orbital wil experience the lowest effective nuclear charge because 4p orbital has higher value of energy than 2p and 3p so it is far from nucleus in comparison to 2p and 3p orbitals.
