AuEau Principle - or building up principle of electron configuraAon electrons fill the lowest- energy orbital available (s < p < d <f ) Pauli Exclusion Principle – each orbital can hold up to two electrons with their spins in opposite direcAons. Hund’s Rule – each orbital in a subshell is half- filled (with one electron) and prior to filling the orbitals (with two electrons.) Fill the oritals according to the order given in the figure.

Each principal energy level, n contains only n sublevels. Each sublevel is composed of one or more orbitals (one s, three p, five d). No more than 2 electrons in any orbital, the two are paired. Maximum number of electrons in any principal energy level is 2(n)2. Fill orbitals from lowest to highest energy.
