Relationships between these variables in a gyroscope?

  1. Jul 11, 2015 #1
    this is the gyroscope I am talking about: U52006_01_1200_1200_Gyroscope.jpg
    the variables are:
    -the angular velocity of the disk
    -the angular velocity of precession
    -the amount of force "applied" by the disk upward or downward

    Have you tried searching the net for a precession formula?
    There will be more variables involved.
