  1. Oct 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The spin of each of the two nucleons is 3/2 with Sz=0 . The orbital angular momentum b/w the two nucleons is zero . What values can the total angular momentum have ?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    This was a question in my exam and i got stuck , so any help will be of much use . Thanx

    use the angular momentum addition theorem
    [itex]j_1+j_2=j_1+j_2, . . . , |j_1-j_2|[/itex]
