Motion is stable for initial rotation about the 3 axis if the 3 axis is the principal axis having the largest or smallest moment of inertia. (b) For 3 0 ω = and 2 ω large, 1 0 K < so 1 1 1 0 K ω ω + = ±± is the differential equation for exponential growth of 1 ω with time: 1 1 k t k t Ae Be ω = + 1 = . Motion is unstable for the initial rotation mostly about the principal axis having the median moment of inertia. 9.20 0 since either xy i i i i I m x y = i x or is zero for all six particles. Similarly, all the other products of inertia are zero. Therefore the coordinate axes are principle axes.
