according to MOT each energy level can be occupied by 2 electrons which must have opposite spins these pairs of electrons considered to occupy molecular orbital. so molecular orbital is formed from the overlap of the atomic orbitals of the atoms making up the bond.
Electrons can occupy the same orbital if they have opposite spin motion.
A spherical electron cloud surrounding an atomic nucleus would best represent an s orbital. A maximum of 2 electrons can occupy an orbital.
10 electrons to fill d-orbital
It is the Pauli exclusion principle.
paul exclusion principle
False. Only two electrons with opposite spins can occupy an orbital.
If two electrons are to occupy the same orbital, they must have opposite spin.
The Pauli Exclusion Principle.
of course they can. They have to be of opposite spin and two is the maximum number that can occupy one orbital.
Electrons in a bonding molecular orbital spend most of their time in the region between the two nuclei, helping to bond the atoms together. Electrons in an antibonding molecular orbital cannot occupy the central region between the nuclei and cannot contribute to bonding.

The maximum number of electrons that can occupy one orbital is 2: One with "Up" spin and one with "Down" spin.
2 electrons is the maximum number for an single orbital.
Two electrons can occupy the same space orbital in an atom if they have different spins. This is known as Hund's Rule.
No - only two electrons with opposite spin can occupy the same orbital
