Problem 54E

A Gyroscope on the Moon.? A certain gyroscope precesses at a rate of 0.50 rad/s when used on earth. If it were taken to a lunar base, where the acceleration due to gravity is 0.165 g, what would be its precession rate?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 54E Step 1: Precession rate of a gyroscope on earth, = mgr EI Where, m - mass of the gyroscope g - acceleration due to gravity r - distance from center of mass of the gyroscope I - Moment of inertia of the gyroscope and - angular velocity

Step 2 of 2
