Physics of Gyroscope Motion About One Axis



The known gyroscope theory based on principle of the rate change in the angular momentum of a spinning rotor. Practice demonstrates this mathematical model cannot describe other gyroscope effects and shows that there are other unsolved problems, which is spawned steady myth of the gyroscope mystery. These phenomena attract new researchers to solve gyroscope problems. The nature of gyroscope effects is more complex that represented in publications and known mathematical models do not match the actual motions and forces of the gyroscope effects. Latest studies of forces that involved in motions of a gyroscope demonstrate that there are four dynamical components, which act simultaneously and interrelated with others. The gyroscope with the external torque applied is experienced the resistance torque generated by the centrifugal and Coriolis forces and the precession torque generated by the inertial forces and the rate change of the angular momentum of the spinning rotor. These four dynamical components is represented the fundamental principles of gyroscope theory. Interrelation of this torques demonstrates the new unknown effects of the gyroscope. In case of the blocking the action of the precession torques resistance torques are deactivated. The mathematical model of forces acting in the gyroscope practically tested and the results validated the theoretical approach.
