Relation of gravity with centrifugal force & gyroscopic effect?

  1. Feb 9, 2010 #1
    Is there any relation of gravity with centrifugal force & gyroscopic effect?
    Rotating body shows centrifugal force due to radial acceleration α=rω2. This causes force just like gravitation force.
    Rotating gyroscope doesn’t fall & maintain motion. This is just like anti-Gravity.
    Can I say that rotating body just like “pump” Which suck graviton particle from one side & discharge that on other side so on one side it create Anti-Gravity(Gyroscope) & on other it create gravity(Centrifugal force)?

    No they don't. That's just a popular hoax.
