Problem 30CQ

Gyroscopes used in guidance systems to indicate directions in space must have an angular momentum that does not change in direction. Yet they are often subjected to large forces and accelerations. How can the direction of their angular momentum be constant when they are accelerated?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 The angular momentum in the case of the gyroscope, are used as a guidance system to indicate directions, is directed in the perpendicular direction to the plane in which it is rotating.
