**1. Problem: Consider the composed system of two particles of spin ##s=1## where their angular momenta is ##l=0##. What values can the total spin take if they identical? What changes when they are distinguishable?**

## The Attempt at a Solution

:The problem I have here is incorporating the fact that ##l=0## and the information about being identical or not. I know what to do if problem just stated, ''consider two particles with spin ##s=1## what values can the total spin take?''.

In that case it's kind of trivial, the theory of addition of spins or angular momenta for two particles states that the total value ##j=[|j_{1} - j_{2}|,j_{1}+j_{2}]##. So applying it to these numbers would give possible total spins of 0,1 and 2.

The additional two pieces of information confuse me a bit.[/B]
