## Main Question or Discussion Point

as far as i know angular mechanics contains no axioms in it.

it just a helpful tool to solve problems with a rotating body, but technically if you regard the body as a set of independent particles you should be able to solve any problem without angular momentum, right?

so how can you show a spinning top or a gyroscope won't fall using normal linear mechanics?

i have absolutely no idea how to do that...

thank you very much for helping :D
