Homework Statement
See the attached picture for the questions and information. This is actually due today and I haven't gotten all the answers  but it would be good to know how to do everything for when final exams come around. I particularly find (c), (d), (f), and (g) the most difficult.
Homework Equations
[tex]\dot{\psi}[/tex] = Precession rate
[tex]\dot{\theta}[/tex] = Nutation rate
[tex]p[/tex] = Spin
Angular momentum:
[tex]H_{x}=I_{x}\omega_{x}=I_{o}\dot{\theta}[/tex]
[tex]H_{y}=I_{y}\omega_{y}=I_{o}\dot{\psi}sin\theta[/tex]
[tex]H_{z}=I_{z}\omega_{z}=I\dot{\psi}cos\theta+p[/tex]
Forced Precession:
[tex]M_{x}=\dot{\psi}sin\theta[I(\dot{\psi}cos\theta+p)I_{o}(\dot{\psi}cos\theta)][/tex]
Free Precession:
[tex]\dot{\psi}=\frac{Ip}{(I_{o}I)cos\theta}[/tex]
