Homework Help: Calculate the angular frequency w using the Euler equations

  1. Aug 23, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Consider the earth as a rigid body with moment of inertia I1, I2 and I3. The earth is symmetric around the z-axis (I1 = I2). Calculate the angular frequency w using the euler equations

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Hi Mistur, welcome to the forum.

    We can help you with your homework, but we won't just do it for you. You have to show that you made some attempt to do it yourself. Then we can give you some hints or help with places you are stuck.

    Maybe as a start you could write down the Euler equations the problem refers to and attempt to identify the things in the problem that correspond to the items in the equation.
