Solution: In a many-electron atom, can we predict unambiguously whether the 4s orbital is lower or higher in energy than the 3d orbitals?

Problem

In a many-electron atom, can we predict unambiguously whether the 4s orbital is lower or higher in energy than the 3d orbitals?

Solution
  • Recall that for a one-electron hydrogen atom, orbitals on the same energy level have the same energy. These orbitals are called degenerate orbitals
