Electron Configuration
Order of Energy Levels




Inner shell electrons “shield” outer electrons
from the full positive effect of the nucleus –
“screening effect”
Different orbitals shield the outer electrons
more effectively than others
Not all orbitals experience the same + charge
from the nucleus
Therefore different orbitals have different
potential energies
Degenerate Orbitals

Orbitals that have the same energies
Electron Spin



Electron behaves as if it is spinning on
its axis
Fourth Quantum number (ms) is the
spin number
It can be either –1/2 or +1/2

Spinning electrons produce magnetic
fields
Pauli Exclusion Principle



No two electrons can have the same set
of four quantum numbers (n, l, ml, ms)
If an orbital has two electrons in it, they
must have different spins
Electrons in the same orbital with
different spins are called paired
electrons
