# Azimuthal Symmetry is on a certain axes that is not simply the $z$-axes

let's say in a problem, the azimuthal symmetry is along the axis $$\frac{1}{\sqrt6}(-1, -1, 2)$$. If I create two new basis angles and get solved the LaPlace's equation with that, what should I do to convert it back to my standard basis.

• Hi Chris! Welcome to Physics.SE. Sorry, but right now your question is difficult for me to understand. It's hard to see what you mean by "If I create two new basis angles and get solved the LaPlace's equation with that". What are "basis angles"? Where are you putting them? What is "that" at the end?
