|SimReal: Physics - K10 - Gyroscope|
This application shows the principle of a gyroscope.
If the wheel is not rotating, the wheel will fall down.
But if the wheel is rotating, the wheel will spin around the vertical axis in a horizontal plane.
Control objects : - Rotation : The wheel is rotating around a horizontal axis - Radius : Radius vector - Force : Gravity force on the wheel - Torque : τ = r x F - Angular Momentum : L = Iω - Change of Angular Momentum : dL/dt = τ - New Angular Momentum : Lnew = L + dL - Txt : Text on the vectors - Formula 01 : Formula at the top of the simulation window - Formula 02 : Formula in the simulation window
