Calculating Gyroscopic Torque

  1. Mar 18, 2015 #1
    Could anybody answer a question real quick I have about gyroscopic torque ? I want to use two counter rotating brake rotors in a copy cat lit-motors concept, and was wondering if I had two rotors and each one weighed 10 kilos how many rpm would have to spin to create 400kg of gyroscopic tourque, and if somebody was good enough how many watts would it take?
    Thanks a ton,
    Will

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
