Using Euler equations:

omega y'=omega*sin(alpha)

omega z'=omega*cos(alpha)

Ly'=I*omega*sin(alpha)

Lz'=Is*omega*cos(alpha)

and Ly'/Lz'=tan(theta)=I/Is=tan(alpha)

Would the cross product of omega and L give me the angle between the axis of rotation and the invariable line? I am not sure how to begin this problem or if this is the right start.
