The atomic transition probabilities are calculated for individual lines between some quartet terms of 3p↦4d and 3p↦5d transition arrays using weakest bound electron potential model theory (WBEPMT). In the determination of relevant parameters which are needed for calculation of transition probabilities, we employed numerical non-relativistic Hartree-Fock wave functions for expectation values of radius in both ground and excited states unlike to NCA method used on traditional WBEPMT procedure. We have obtained very good agreement between our results and the accepted values taken from NIST.
