  1. Wouldn't you expect it to get stronger (as long as the electron is in the same shell).

  2. yeah that's what i thought but my notes said :the greater the nuclear charge, the weaker the electron's attraction to the nucleus" so i got confused.
    and this is for factors affecting trends

    & can u please explain electron-electron repulsion pls?

  3. Like charges repel; unlike charges attract.
