If core electrons completely shielded valence electrons from
nuclear charge (i.e., if each core electron reduced nuclear charge
by 1 unit) and if valence electrons did not shield one another
from nuclear charge at all, what would be the effective nuclear
charge experienced by the valence electrons of each atom?
