Sketch the radial distribution functions for the 3s, 3p, 4s, and 3d subshells. Then, use the principle you observed in your comparison of radial distribution functions from question 3 to explain the origin of the Aufbau principle for filling atomic orbitals in the familiar sequence: 3sfills first, then 3pand 4sbefore 3d orbitals.
