Slater's rules are an attempt to lump the effect of all other electrons on the wavefunction, and thereby other properties such as energy, of an electron (described by a hydrogen-like wavefunction). The effect of electron-electron repulsion is modeled indirectly by saying that inner shell electrons effectively screen the attractive nuclear charge sensed by ...

Firstly, we need to clearly define "atomic volume" and "molar volume". Typically, one would understand "atomic volume" to be the volume of an atom of the element and it is directly related to the radius of the atom. Molar volume is a macroscopic property that is defined by Wikipedia as the ratio of the molar mass to the mass ...
