A top spins at 33 rev/s about an axis that makes an angle of 26° with the vertical. The mass of the top is 0.47 kg, its rotational inertia about its central axis is 5.0 x 10-4 kg·m2, and its center of mass is 3.1 cm from the pivot point. The spin is clockwise from an overhead view. (a) What is the precession rate? (b) What is the direction of the precession as viewed from overhead?
The Attempt at a Solution
It looks like most of the variables were given in the problem statement, but im not sure which im getting wrong. i tried g=mgcosθ because the angled axis but that didnt work. Im not sure about my r value also.
