Gyroscope
Technical Description

The moments generated by the gyroscopic effect can be investigated using this unit. The basic component is a flywheel driven about its own axis. This is mounted together with its drive motor as a yoke and forms the gyroscope. This arrangement is placed in rotation about a vertical axis with the aid of a second motor. The rotational speeds of both motors are electronically regulated and displayed digitally. The gyroscopic moment is preselected by simply positioning a counterweight at different radii. A transparent cover provides protection against touching the rotating parts. The gyroscope is a portable table unit. All that is required for operation is a mains supply.
