Description

When a torque acts on a spinning object, the angular momentum changes. 'Torques and Gyroscopes' explains why a spinning top doesn't topple, whether it's a child's toy or the planet Earth, and how the rate of change of angular momentum is equal to the applied torque. In this program we examine conservation, torque, gyroscope, equinox, earth and procession.
