Pauli’s exclusion Principle
According to it: “no two electrons can have the same set of all four quantum numbers.”
Or, it states that an orbital can have maximum of two electrons and that must be of opposite spin. Due to this, it was concluded that an orbital can have maximum of two electrons which can have all 3-quantum number same but the spin will be definitely different.
Shapes of atomic orbitals:
Its shape is spherical.For 1s the probability of finding electron is maximum near nucleus and it decreases as we move away from nucleus.
For 2s: Again, probability of finding electron is maximum near nucleus and decrease as the distance increase. But it has one ring in it, where probability of finding electron is zero that is a nodal plane or a node.
The shape of 2s differs from 1s as it has one node and 1s has no node. Similarly, in 3s there are two nodes.
The different s orbitals differ from each other in number of nodes, size and energy.
Its shape is dumb-bell. It is found that probability of finding electron is maximum in both the lobes. There is a plane passing through nucleus where probability of finding the electron is almost zero. That is nodal plane.
There are 3 sub-shells: px, py and pz.
It is directional in nature.All the 3 p orbitals are degenerate that is have same energy.
It has 5 subshells:dxy,dyz,dzx,dx2-y2 and dz2
There shapes are given as shown:
The shape of dz2 is called as doughnut shape or baby soother type shape.
Number of nodes in any orbital can be calculated by: (n-l-1).
