Well, this is only a theoretical question that attacked me when I'm studying the rigid body mechanics:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When you have a rigid body rotating about an axis that passes through center of mass and the angular velocity is constant vector then the angular momentum is parallel to angular velocity. Well, but if the body rotates about other axis that don't passes through CM, what's the angular momentum? and definitely what's the angular momentum when the axis is not changing (in other words when angular velocity has a derivative non null almost)?
