Homework#2 (Graded)


.   The goal of this homework assignment is to give you practice calculating and understanding effective nuclear charge.

   The effective nuclear charge was defined in lecture and also in the text index). Estimate the effective nuclear charge for a valence electron in oxygen using the Bohr formula for a one-electron ionization , but in which the positive charge, Zeff, attracting that one electron accommodates the screening effect of all the other electrons about the nucleus. The ionization energy is 1314 kJ/mol.
