Longitudinal Axis
Triple axis of the three modes of vibration drawn to reference a circle and sphere.

The three modes working together develop rotation by and through each other's motion - the rotation is the Raleigh Wave or Surface Wave? mode. The first two modes cause (or are) straight line and zig-zag motions only. The third or Raleigh Wave is circular.
