MM 441 GYROSCOPE, Single Motor
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

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

The equipment consists of a rotor with a motor, and a low voltage power supply and speed control. The rotor is mounted horizontally on a frame with two bearing supports. The rods with sliding weights are attached to the frame along the rotor axis to produce balance, positive or negative torque conditions. A tachometer measures rotor and progression speeds. The frame rests on a vertical shaft on bearings to permit progression. A guard with transparent front is provided for safety. The top assembly can be removed for determination experimentally the moment of inertia, and nutation study.

Instruction manual is also included.
