All good!I have to say I agree with @psychegram
Complete layman here but @psychegram sounds like he knows what he's talking about here.
@woneill1701 I think it's okay to admit if someone knows something and you don't. It can be a learning experience - to me it reads like @psychegram is giving us all a free lesson in this stuff with his answers. Given it is his ACTUAL area of work, I think the odds of him knowing what he's talking about is very high indeed and it sounds it!
I know what I know. Not trying to knock @psychegram. Lots of respect!
What I would suggest is that everyone interested looks into the mechanics and dynamics of Gyroscopes. They are fascinating and worthy of study!
They also don’t behave the way most people - even many trained physicists - think!
I have been studying them on and off for 30 years. I still believe there is a way to convert between angular and linear momentum as originally proposed by Eric Laithwaite many years ago… (But I have not found it yet and may be wrong about that one…)
If I have triggered anyone to think a bit deeper about them, and motivated anyone to do some digging of their own into a subject that is definitely under-explored, then I am happy to back away from the discussion!
