Asked by: stan head
Subject: External acceleration forces effects on a gyro
Question: If a gyro sits inside a body ( say a rocket being launched) that undergoes strong acceleration at say 10g what effect does that have on the gyro sitting inside? Does the rotation if in the same plane increase for 1/2 a rotation by +10g and then decrease by -10g for 1/2 a rotation? If perpendicular to the force of acceleration how is it effected?
