Solution: In an atom, which electrons tend to do the most shielding (core electrons or valence electrons)?

Solution: In an atom, which electrons tend to do the most shielding (core electrons or valence electrons)?

Problem

In an atom, which electrons tend to do the most shielding (core electrons or valence electrons)?

Solution

In this problem, we are being asked to determine electrons tend to do the most shielding (core electrons or valence electrons).


Recall that electrons in an atom can shield each other from the pull of the nucleus. This effect called the shielding effect.
