During today’s meeting, James presented on gyroscopes and precession. A gyroscope has a rotor and spins around its axis. They are used widely in consumer products (like iPhones) and also used in navigation. Precession is when the axis around which the gyroscope is rotating changes orientation. James demonstrated some of the equations behind precession and rotation.
Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, we were unable to show the actual powerpoint during the meeting. However, it is attached here in all its glory for you to peruse. File: Gyroscopes
