How spinning top work?

  1. Feb 5, 2014 #1
    Can somebody tell me how can a spinning top turn? I still dont uderstand, because they use some difficult terms to explain. (=.=)

    with the Physics theory used and whole and full explanation that a secondary student can understand.

    and also explain why the spinning will stop turning soon after we touch it.
