The electrons identified by quantum numbers n and l : (a) n = 4, l = 1 (b) n = 4, l = 0 (c) n = 3, l = 2 (d) n = 3 , l = 1 Can be placed in order of increasing energy as ?

Hint: Highet the value of n+l, higher the energy of orbital. If the value of n+l is same for two subshells, the one with lower value of n should be filled first because it possesses lower energy.
