If an object is rotating about the axis of symmetry(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and you are trying to find the angular momentum about the mass centre g.

Does a rotation about the axis of symmetry correspond to a rotation about the principle axis?

For this question i am trying to find the angular momentum about the mass centre of cone which is rotating about its axis of symmetry. However the axis of rotation is also rotating about the z axis.

Does the angular velocity w effect the angular momentum about the mass centre? I am guessing it would...

The only thing i am not sure about weather or not angular momentum about G would be evaluated about the principle axis
