Question

The order of screening effect of electrons of $$s,\ p,\ d$$ and $$f$$ orbitals of a given shell of an atom on its outer shell electrons is:


A
s>p>d>f
loader
B
f>d>p>s
loader
C
p>f>d>s
loader
D
f>p>s>d
loader

Solution

The correct option is A $$s>p>d>f$$
For the same shell, screening effect decreases in the order: $$s>p> d >f$$. Thus, for $$n=4$$, $$4s$$ orbital has maximum screening effect and $$4f$$ orbital has the lowest screening effect.
