What experiences the greater effective nuclear charge?

What experiences the greater effective nuclear charge?

Although both orbitals are shielded by 1s, 2s and 2p electrons, the electrons on the same level also contribute to shielding. Since krypton has more electrons in n 3, it experiences more shielding and has lesser effective nuclear charge. Electrons from n 3 of Argon (Ar) has a greater effective nuclear charge.

Which would experience a higher effective nuclear charge and why?

The valence electron in Nitrogen experiences a greater effective nuclear charge.
