The unpaired electrons in Al and Si are present in 3p orbital. Which electrons will experience more effective nuclear charge from the nucleus ?





Q.65:- The unpaired electrons in Al and Si are present in 3p orbital. Which electrons will experience more effective nuclear charge from the nucleus ?

 

 

Answer:-
Silicon has greater nuclear charge (+14) than aluminium (+13). Hence, the unpaired 3p electron in case of silicon will experience more effective nuclear charge.
