In fluorine, the electron is to
be accommodated on second quantum energy shell. On account of small size, the electron
density on this energy shell is very high. Thus, the electron to be
accommodated experiences repulsion much more in comparison to chlorine atom in
which the electron is accommodated on third quantum energy shell where space is
more and electron density is comparatively less.
