I was wondering if someone could help me explain this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a baryon, two quarks are in l=0 and one quark is in the l=1 state. Quarks are spin-1/2 particles. What values can the total angular momentum take?

I know the answer is 1/2, 3/2, and 5/2, but I'm confused about how they arrive at this answer.

Thx for any help!
