## D4-10: AIR GYROSCOPE

### Additional Info

• ID Code: D4-10
• Purpose: Show gyroscopic effects in a relatively friction-free system.
• Description:

A variety of effects can be illustrated with this device, including precession, nutation, effect of forces, etc.

Note: Be gentle with this device, especially the metal ball, as it can be easily damaged. Place cushion under the ball before moving the device. Set the compressor on the floor on a rubber pad to isolate its vibrations.
