this is so bcoz neither F nor N has vacant orbitals(remember no d-orbitals)...whereas Cl in NCl3 has vacant d-orbitals to accomodate elctrons n get hydrolysed..

Simple because chlorine has a vacant d-orbital . so,ncl3 is hydrolysed.that's why NF3 is considered stable.

Dear student,
Please find the answer to your question.

In NCl3, Cl has vacant d-orbitals to accept the lone pair of electrons donated by O-atom of H2O molecule but in NF3, F does not have any d-orbitals. Thus, NCl3 undergoes hydrolysis but NF3 does not.

Thanks and regards,
