so components of w in local coordinates are (0,wsinx, wcosx) where x is the colatitude angle (at the north pole x = 0, and at equator x= 90)

having established this:

when using euler angles (im looking at yzy convention or simply y convention) are the angles still interpreted as referenced to the original i,j,k coordinate system?, so that in problems when you express k in components of e1' and e2' (the new axes after rotation) is this similar conceptually to the above situation?
