Assume that any two electrons are indistinguishable.An atomic orbital is to be specified by 4 quantum no.s n,l,m and s .Calculate the no. of ways of accommodating two electrons in the 3d orbitals of an atom

Two electrons in 3d orbital will be having same value of n,l and m but will have opposite spins.According to hund's rule of maximum multiplicity no electron pairing can take place in p,d and f untill each orbital in the given subshell contains one electron.Also unpaired electron present in the various orbitals of the same subshell should have parallel spins.
Therefore the two electrons will be in differt orbitals and will have parallel spins.
I hope this clarifies your doubt
