Gyroscopic couple C = I x w x wp 2. Applied Torque (T) = W X r’Procedure Of Experiment:Part I:The spinning body exerts a torque or a couple in such a direction which tends to make theaxis of spin coincides with that of the precession. To study the phenomenon of forcedprecession following procedure is adopted. 1. Balance initial horizontal position of rotor. 2. Start the motor and adjust the voltage to get the constant speed. 3. Press the yoke frame about the vertical axis by applying the necessary force by hand in the clockwise direction viewed from the top. 4.
