Asked by: Boopsey
Subject: Up-righting a gyro
Question: If a gyroscope is spinning at a tilted angle and it's spin speed slows down, the gyro will start to fall.
Does that mean, if the speed of the spinning, tilted, gyro is increased it will upright itself?

 Hi Boopsey,

I recommend You to watch this video:

The rising or falling of the gyro will depend on the direction of the applied torque.
