Trying to find the vector math for gyroscopic precession - all web sites I've seen that deal with analysis don't include direction of rotation as a vector and I can't find a discussion in my texts on the subject.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question I'm trying to answer is whether two opposite rotating discs of equal speed/mass will cancel precessional forces. This is being looked at in terms of a motorcycle wheel patent to make steering easier at high speed.

Everybody seems to have their own opinion on the subject and so it seems the only way to settle the question is with the math.

Thanks for any help

Robert
