What is Hund's rule? Why is it important when writing orbital diagrams?
Here, we are going to state Hund’s rule and discuss why it is important when writing orbital diagrams.
According to Hund’s rule, electron pairing will not take place in orbitals of same energy(subshell) until each orbital is singly filled.
For example, there are three p- orbitals(px, py and pz) of the p - subshell in a principal energy level. According to Hund’s rule, each of the three p-orbitals must get one electron of parallel spin before any one of them receives the second electron of opposite spin.
