they have opposite spin
False. Only two electrons with opposite spins can occupy an orbital.
No - only two electrons with opposite spin can occupy the same orbital
The Pauli Exclusion Principal states that two fermions (an electron is a fermion) can only occupy an orbital if they have opposite spin.
if they have opposite spin.
only if spins are opposite: one up one down.
It is the Pauli exclusion principle.

The Pauli exclusion principle. See related link.
There can only be 2 electrons in each single orbital, and they will be on opposite sides of the electron cloud (orbital).
Any s orbital can only hold 2 electrons maximum.
The orbital that allows no more than two electrons is the s orbital. This is a spherical shaped orbital. Elements with valence electrons lying only in the s orbital are metals.
