Since valence levels have higher total energies than core levels, within the core

the core electrons, the valence electrons must have even higher kinetic energies.

Since valence levels have higher total energies than core levels, within the core

**region**, where they experience the same large and negative potential energy asthe core electrons, the valence electrons must have even higher kinetic energies.
