Demos: 1Q-08 Demonstration Gyroscopes

The gyroscope provides an interesting and fascinating demonstration of the Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum. The demonstration gyroscope is titled such because of their large size making them easy to observe. These gyroscopes have two degrees of freedom and they can be powered by string pull or an electric motor. The MITAC Gyroscope has a permanent electric motor to power the spinning and has the capability to be either a single or two degree of freedom gyroscope. The demonstration gyroscopes can be used to demonstrate stability, precession and nutations.
