If you are in the Northern Hemisphere and you stand on a rotating platform holding a spinning wheel and you tilt the axis so that your left hand is up and the right hand is down, why do you spin clockwise faster than the opposite way?(Right hand up?) It seems like since in the Northern Hemisphere the Earth spins counter clockwise, that the opposite would be true? Which way would the Torque push hardest? My experiment shows clockwise and I need to know why?
