I have come across the Slater's Rules that is used to calculate the numerical value of effective nuclear charge of elements.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can somebody please show to me the calculation of effective nuclear charge of atoms of element down the group 2 by using the Slater's rule??

I calculate by using the information fromhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slater's_rules.

many books mention that increment in atomic radius down the group 2 is caused by the decreasing effective nuclear charge. is it true? Thanks for your help and i really need all your help.
