Not a scientist, please be nice :) Let's assume I have a singe axis gyro (flywheel) spinning in space. I apply a force to a point which results in a change in pitch. I apply this force until the gyro is at 5* pitch and then stop. Will the gyro continue to change pitch after the force stops? If not, is the momentum from the pitch change conserved? How so? Or is there no momentum to conserve? Thanks!
