Angular vel. and mom.--origins vs. axes
This is a conceptual question.
Angular velocity is measured with respect to an axis, correct?
Yet angular momentum is measured with respect to an origin, i.e. a point, correct?
For angular momentum problems where only the magnitude of angular momentum changes, it seemed like we were calculating L with respect to an axis, but that was not correct, strictly speaking, right?

Angular momentum is measured wrt a point
Angular velocity isn't
