# Finding the moment of inertia through superposition?

Let's say I have a body consisting of two homogenous spheres/balls that touch each other. I also have a body fixed coordinate system which consists of that body's principal axes. I know the the moment of inertia for each of the spheres alone, $I=\frac{2}{5}mr^2$. Can I use that to find the moment of inertia of the entire body?

I need this because for such a body, with such a coordinate system, I don't think integration would be very simple...

I'm looking for all three moment of inertias, however two of them should be the same because of rotational symmetry.

about the axis passing two centers: $I=\frac{2}{5}mR^2+\frac{2}{5}mR^2$
about each of two axes perpendicular to each other and previous one passing the contact point : $I=\frac{2}{5}mR^2+mR^2+\frac{2}{5}mR^2+mR^2$ (using parallel axes theorem)
