INTRODUCTION TO GYROSCOPIC EFFECT
Whenever a body i  rotating or spinni ng i n a plane (pl ane YZ) about an axis (axis OX) and its axis of rotation or spi n is made to precess i n an another perpendi cular plane (plane XZ), as shown i n F ig. 1.1, the coup l e is i nduced on the rotating or spinni ng body across the axis of rotation or spin in a third mutuall y perpendi cular plane (plane XY).

Conversel y, whenever a body is rotati ng i n a plane (plane YZ) about an axis (axis OX) and a coupl e is applied on the rotati ng body across the axis of rotati on or spin i n an another perpendi cul ar plane (plane XY), the rotati ng or spinni ng body starts processi ng in a third mutuall y perpendi cular plane (plane XZ). The above stated effects are known as gyroscopic effects. The two things are necessary for existence of gyroscopi c effect. 1. 2.

The gyroscopi c effect is observed i n aeroplanes, ships, two wheel ers, four wheel ers, etc. The gyroscopi c effect finds its application i n instruments like : gyrocompass used in aeroplanes; missil es and space vehi cl es to sense the angular moti on of a body; gyroscopi c flow meter; gyroscopi c altitude i ndi cator, etc.

GYROSCOPE Gyroscope is a mechani cal system or arrangement havi ng a rotor (usuall y heavy) spinni ng at high speed about its axis and bei ng free to turn in any directi on, as shown i n F ig. 1.2.
It consist of a rotor rotating on an axl e whi ch is supported by a ring call ed inner gimble, with beari ngs. This inner gi mbl e is supported i n one more ri ng call ed outer gimble, with bearings; and this outer gi mbl e is supported i nside a frame, with beari ngs. The frame is supported on a heavy stand as shown in F ig. 1.2. The rotor of gyroscope has three degrees of freedom : 1. Spinni ng about axis XX. 2. Tilting about axis YY. 3. Veeri ng about axis ZZ.
