How do we know when ms is negative or positive 1/2?

The signs don't really matter, the -/+ or the "up" and "down" For the subshells, you can only have like a 1/2 or a -1/2 or up and down but you can't really have like two positive spins electrons in the same subshell or two negative spins electrons in the same subshell -- they need to be different spins.

Once all the orbitals have been filled up by the electron with +1/2 spin (arrows facing up), the second electron in the orbital would be filled by the electron with -1/2 spin (arrows facing down).
