Some questions on energy of orbitals

  1. Dec 21, 2012 #1
    1. We know px,py,pz are degenerate orbitals... My question is suppose in
    0=[He] 2s^2 2px^2 2py^1 2pz^1
    Are the px,py,pz orbitals degenerate here?

    2. What is the reason of inert pair effect?

    3. What is the order of shielding effect for s,p,d,f?
