(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A stick of length 2L and of mass M spins with angular velocity ω around the axis perpendicular to the COM of the stick.It is rotating with making an angle Θ,with the axis parallel to Z axis.The COM has an initial velocity v=υ(to the y axis).Find it's precession radius R.

2. Relevant equations.

Angular momentom L=IW

Again L=mυR and

τ=δL/δt

3. The attempt at a solution

I figure out the torque τ and the change of angular momentum .then i find the gyroscopic relationship W=mgr/Iω

Please help me to find the things out.

Thanks.
