Answer :

Effective nuclear charge (Zeff) can be defined as the net positive charge which is experienced by the electrons in the outermost (valence) shell.


Along a period, the effective nuclear charge increases from left to right (from metals to non-metals). Moving from top to bottom of a group, the effective nuclear charge of the element decreases.
