What is the heinsberg principle?

It is impossible to define with absolute precision simultaneously both the position and velocity of an electron. 

11

What is the Aufbau principle?

Electrons occupy orbitals in increasing energy

12

What is Pauli's exclusion principle?

The 2 electrons in each orbital must have different spins 

13

What is Hund's rule?

When degnerate orbitals are available, each should be filled singly with parallel spins before pairing.
