1

define atomic orbitals

space around the nucleus where the electrons exist

2

each principle energy level surrounding the nucleus has a

specific number of sub-levels within it

3

each sub-level has a specific:

shape and is designated with a letter

4

each sub-level can only hold a certain

number of electrons

5

define the Aufbau Principle

electrons fills up the lowest energy levels first

6

define Pauli Explusion Principle

only 2 electrons can share an orbital and they have opposite spin

7
