E= [(h^2 pi^2)/(2 m a^2)] * (nx^2 + ny^2 + nz^2)

where nx, ny, nz are integers 0.

If 10 electrons are placed in this box, what is the lowest possible total energy of all the electron?

......................................

I am finding this question really intersting but im stuck over one thing..

Why does it say "where nx, ny, nz are integers 0"

Surley this means that only 2 electrons can fit in the box, one spin up, one spin down?

I dont understand!!! please help...
