Experiment 06: Gyroscope - Physics of Rotating Wheel

Exploration: When an object moves in a linear motion, we discuss it’s displacement, velocity, and acceleration. When an object moves in a circular motion, we discuss it’s angular displacement, angular velocity, and angular acceleration. The gyroscope measures the angular velocity in degrees/second. Use a bicycle wheel to observe changes in angular velocity.
