Thus ( ) 0 xx x y y z x z IK I I λλλ −−= (9.54a) ( ) 0 zx x yz y z z II I K −+ = (9.54c) 222 1 xyz + += (9.57) Note: Since , x yy z I I = Equations (9.54a) and (9.54c) were chosen to simplify the “elimination” of y during the solution process. Substituting for the moments and products of inertia in Equations (9.54a) and (9.54c) 22 2 13 1 1 0 12 2 xy z ma K ma ma  −− =   2 11 1 3 0 21 2 z ma ma ma K
