The pauli exclusive principle states that, in an atom or molecule, no two electrons can have the same four electronic quantum numbers. We are aware that in one orbital a maximum of two electrons can be found and the two electrons must have opposing spins. No two electrons in an atom can have identical quantum numbers.

so answer is pauli exclusive principle
