Question

For a hydrogenic atom all orbitals in a given shell are energetically degenerate. What does this mean? Are different subshells in a non‐hydrogenic atom (an atom having more than one electron) degenerate? If you believe subshells of non‐hydrogenic atoms are not degenerate propose an explanation.
