Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Gyroscope"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. If a gyroscope is spinning, its torque will be a force vector pointing from the center and perpendicular to its angular momentum.
  2. A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principle of conservation of angular momentum. (Web site)

Picture

  1. The spinning gyroscope in the picture here is displaying an effect called precession.

Subject

Period

  1. The Earth is a giant gyroscope whose axis passes through the North and South Poles and this axis precesses with a period of 27,700 years. (Web site)

Page

  1. As the gyroscope precesses out of the page, the angle the field makes with the gyroscope rotates with the precession.

Place

  1. Conceptually, the experiment is simple: Place a gyroscope and a telescope in a satellite orbiting the Earth.

Experiments

  1. The goal of these experiments was to make a measurement of the forces arising while the gyroscope was spinning. (Web site)
  2. In 1989, H.Hayasaka and S.Takeuchi conducted a series of experiments in which the fall-time of a freely-falling spinning gyroscope was measured. (Web site)

Long

  1. Thus as long as the gyroscope is spinning, it will maintain a constant orientation.

Circle

  1. For a layman’s explanation of Precession: we will have to imagine the wheel of a gyroscope as a group of particles that are being forced to move in circle. (Web site)

Vector

  1. Friction produces a torque that decreases the magnitude of the vector and eventually causes the gyroscope to stop spinning. (Web site)

Acting

  1. It becomes very stable because the satellite as a whole is acting as a gyroscope. (Web site)

Destroying

  1. Its gyroscope s began to fail and when it was down to its last gyroscope, the choice was to risk losing control or destroying the observatory.

Pushing

  1. By pushing on the left half of the gyroscope, she creates a torque (r XF) pointing down.

Roll

  1. In Western aircraft the gyroscope is geared to a display that has two dimensions of freedom, simultaneously displaying pitch and roll.

Figure

  1. In figure 1, the gyroscope is spinning on its axis. (Web site)
  2. This creates an instantaneous precession F S that in Figure 2 will cause the gyroscope to precess out of the page at the top of the picture.
  3. Figure 4: A motorised gyroscope, clamped in gimbals. (Web site)

String

  1. Figure 8: A toy gyroscope, spinning while dangling on a string. (Web site)
  2. In 1917, the Chandler Company of Indianapolis, Indiana created the "Chandler gyroscope", a toy gyroscope with a pull string and pedestal.

Interference

  1. A fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) is a gyroscope that uses the interference of light to detect mechanical rotation. (Web site)

System

  1. Consequently, in the design of a system that relies upon the output voltage of a gyroscope, the null point must be accurately determined. (Web site)

Mounting

  1. In other words, the gyroscope will rotate around its mounting at B, moving in a circle in the horizontal plane. (Web site)

Gravity

  1. Gravity produces a torque perpendicular to both the axis of the gyroscope and the vertical, and thus causes the horizontal precession. (Web site)
  2. The gyroscope will rotate around the string due to precession under gravity. (Web site)

Motion

  1. Torque, along with angular momentum, is the leading factor dictating the motion of a gyroscope. (Web site)

Pendulum

  1. An air sextant has an artificial, built-in horizontal reference based upon a bubble or occasionally a pendulum or gyroscope. (Web site)

Space Shuttle Atlantis

  1. It was launched in 1991 aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis during STS-37. It was deorbited in 2000 after failure of a gyroscope. (Web site)

Tilt

  1. The general relativistic effect causes a gyroscope to tilt away from its orbital plane. (Web site)

Rotation Axis

  1. A slow, periodic conical motion of the rotation axis of a spinning body, most familiar in the wobbling of a toy top or gyroscope. (Web site)
  2. A classical gyroscope is modified by using two permanent magnets on the rotation axis, coaxial with it. (Web site)

Precessing

  1. Image 7 depicts the gyroscope when it is precessing. (Web site)
  2. Like a giant gyroscope, the Earth has an axis that passes through its poles, precessing once every 27,700 years. (Web site)

Pivot Point

  1. This gives the pivot point a better chance to "move out of the way" and "drop" the gyroscope. (Web site)
  2. The swinging of the whole gyroscope around that pivot point is called precession. (Web site)

Right-Hand Rule

  1. The "right-hand rule" can help you to understand the torque in a system such as the gyroscope. (Web site)

Spinning Wheel

  1. The gyroscope seems to defy gravity because the torque created by the spinning wheel counteracts the torque due to gravity.
  2. A mechanical gyroscope is essentially a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. (Web site)

Vertical Axis

  1. The turn needle is operated by a gyroscope and indicates the rate at which the aircraft is turning about the vertical axis in degrees per second. (Web site)

Three Axes

  1. A gyroscope in operation with freedom in all three axes. (Web site)
  2. Attitude control can be done by spinning the satellite, or by having it remain stabilized in three axes using an internal gyroscope and thrusters. (Web site)

Work

  1. Since the motion of the Earth seems so similar to that of a gyroscope, it seems that it has been assumed that the same mechanism is at work. (Web site)

Primary Axis

  1. The primary axis rotates the whole gyroscope in the plane of the page, and the secondary axis rotates the gyroscope up-and-over into the page.

Gyroscope Wheel

  1. With magnification it was possible to see within minutes that the Earth had rotated relative to the gyroscope wheel. (Web site)
  2. Air friction is slowing down the gyroscope wheel, as friction cannot be eliminated entirely. (Web site)

Wheel

  1. The turning of the yellow housing is transmitted to the gyroscope wheel, and just for a moment you can see how the gyroscope wheel responds to that. (Web site)
  2. The gyroscope wheel is in a double-axed gimbal mount, so that the force of gravity acts on the wheel's center of mass, and no torque is acting on the wheel. (Web site)
  3. The spinning of the gyroscope wheel can be thought of as combining two oscillations, perpendicular to each other. (Web site)

Direction

  1. Using the right-hand rule, the torque vector on a gyroscope is horizontal in direction, and the vector of angular momentum eventually aligns with it. (Web site)
  2. A mechanical gyroscope consists of a rapidly spinning wheel set in a framework that permits it to tilt freely in any direction or to rotate about any axis. (Web site)

Flywheel

  1. A gyroscope flywheel will roll or resist about the output axis depending upon whether the output gimbal s are of a free- or fixed- configuration. (Web site)
  2. An outer circle on the same plane as the flywheel provides structural stability, and indeed, the gyroscope may include several such concentric rings. (Web site)

External Torque

  1. This kind of motion of a gyroscope that is subjected to an external torque is called forced or torque-induced precession. (Web site)

Stand

  2. Try to put a gyroscope that is not spinning on its stand.
  3. Think about the angular momentum of the tilted, spinning gyroscope on its stand.

Upright

  1. This gyroscope remains upright while spinning due to its angular momentum. (Web site)

Pitch

  1. If the gyroscope wheel would not be spinning the weight would pitch that axis all the way down. (Web site)

Pitching

  1. The gyroscope settles into a sustained dynamic configuration, neither pitching up nor pitching down. (Web site)
