hi. not sure if this belongs in here, so sorry in advance for any trouble caused. i am in a bit of a predicament with a physics assessment of mine; i need to know the mathematical relationships between the precessional frequency, the couple (or torque, as i have read it called) and the angular momentum of a gyroscope, and (here comes the tricky bit) i would like to understand it... i just need someone to point me in the right direction, i mean i hardly know which questions to ask or where to start looking (sob sob). i am quasi-familiar with the concept of moment of inertia being the equivalent of mass in linear motion and angular velocity that of velocity (duh), but i have not found a set of formulae that would allow me to make a connection between the aforementioned...er... things... i come with the rather unsound basis of a-level physics, which is why it will be an especially challenging task for you get me to understand it. good luck (and thanks). cucumber.
