I have a noobish question on spin addition. If I have a system of two particles, each with spin 1, and the spins don't interact, what is the total spin of the system (assuming zero orbital angular momentum)? Is the total spin just 2?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(I hope that my reach hasn't exceeded my grasp here.)
