Question

In which orbital is the electron most tightly bound to the nucleus?
  1. 5s
  2. 5d
  3. 4p
  4. 4d


Solution

The correct option is C 4p
The orbital that has the least (n+l) value would be most tightly bound to the nucleus as it would experience the strongest force of attraction from the positive charges.
