## D4-07: SUITCASE GYROSCOPE

• ID Code: D4-07
• Purpose: Allow people to "feel" the effect of gyroscopic forces.
• Description: Placing the "suitcase" gyroscope box on its base connects power to the motor, causing the gyroscope to spin. Lifting the gyroscope from its base disengages the motor and allows the gyroscope to spin freely. While carrying the box, the experimenter may move about the room, turning, lifting the box, etc., to experience the gyroscopic forces.
