Nuclear charge and Effective Nuclear charge – Digital Kemistry

What is the nuclear charge in the periodic table? The nuclear charge (Z) is defined as “the total charge in the nucleus due to the presence of positive charge protons”. As we move through the periodic table, the atomic number continuously increases due to the increase in the number of protons in the nucleus, thus …
