- Since the advent of satellite positioning, such coordinate systems are typically geocentric, with the
**Z**-**axis**aligned to Earth's (conventional or instantaneous) rotation axis. - This can be interpreted as a rotation of the time
**axis**into the "**z**" axis, with an imaginary rotation parameter. - Once the "x"- and "y"-axes are specified, they determine the line along which the "
**z**"-**axis**should lie, but there are two possible orientation for this line. - The fifth and final d-orbital consists of three regions of high probability density: a torus in between two pear-shaped regions placed symmetrically on its
**z axis**. - By convention, the "x"-
**axis**direction is colored red, the "y"-axis green and the "**z**"-axis blue.

- The curl of the vector at any point is given by the rotation of an infinitesimal area in the "xy"-plane (for "
**z**"-**axis**component of the curl), "zx"-plane (for "y"-axis component of the curl) and "yz"-plane (for "x"-axis component of the curl vector). - One of these results was that the
**z**-component of the angular momentum, the classical inclination of an orbit relative to the z-**axis**, could only take on discrete values, a result which seemed to contradict rotational invariance. - represents the angular velocity along the
**z axis**. - The "
**z**"**axis**is defined to be along the axis of the waveguide. - Rotation around any
**axis**can be performed by taking a rotation around the "x" axis, followed by a rotation around the "y" axis, and followed by a rotation around the "**z**" axis.

- And thus the angular momentum around the
**z**-**axis**is conserved. - This arises because a tiny rotation about the "x"-
**axis**followed by a tiny rotation about the "y"-axis is not the same as reversing the order of these two; they are different, and the difference is a tiny rotation in along the "**z**"-axis. - They depend on the orientation of the Earth's symmetry
**axis**in the inertial space, and, in the general case, affect "all" the Keplerian orbital elements with the exception of the semimajor axis. - The TV camera consisted of a vidicon tube, 25 and 100 mm focal length lenses, shutters, color filters, and iris mounted along an
**axis**inclined approximately 16° to the central axis of the spacecraft. - In what follows, attention is restricted to simple rotation about an
**axis**of fixed orientation.

- A computer mouse has two degrees of freedom, namely its movement on the x- and y-
**axis**.
