Aufbau principle states that in the ground state of atom,The electrons are arranged in the order of their increasing energies.
No two electrons will have all four quantum numbers (s,p,d,f) identical.
The first electron will enter the sub shell that has low energy level i.e. s - sub shell from 1s and then 2s and so on.
So while adding electron in an atom the first electron will be added only in 1s.
The further electrons will be added in the order of next sub shells.
Z= 19, Potassium: 1s^2  2s^2  2p^6  3s^2  3p^6  4s^1

keerthika can you explain me the whole chapter structure of a atom in detail?
oh ok
ill edit it now

If multiple orbitals of the same energy are available, Hund's rule states that unoccupied orbitals will be filled before occupied orbitals are reused (by electrons having different spins). A version of the Aufbau principle can also be used to predict the configuration of protons and neutrons in an atomic nucleus.
