MM 440 GYROSCOPE, Two Motors

The apparatus is used for studying relationship between gyroscopic torque, rotor speed and rate of precession.

The equipment consists of a steel rotor with a small motor, counter weight, precession motor, and instruments for measurement of speeds and counter weight distance. The rotor is mounted horizontally on a frame with two bearing supports. The frame has a horizontal screw for installation of counter weight to provide a torque. The frame rests on a vertical shaft driven by the precession motor via a belt. A guard with transparent front is provided for safety.

Instruction manual is also included.
