Please teach me this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We know that orbit angular momentum is the product of coordinate operator vector and momentum operator,so when we reflect the coordinate system the angular momentum is unchanging(axial vector).But I do not understand why spin vector is axial vector.

Thank you very much in advance.
