## Homework Statement

A certain gyroscope precesses at a rate of 0.60 rad/s when used on earth.

If it were taken to a lunar base, where the acceleration due to gravity is 0.165 g, what would be its precession rate?

## Homework Equations

Is the precession rate directly proportional to the gravity exerted on it.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Pr=Precession rate we know is Torque/Angular Momentum. The only place i see gravity is in torque (r*ma) so I figured that if the force of gravity is .165 times less, the PR would be .165 times less, or .60 x .165 = 0.099, but that's wrong
