Question

Asked by: JCTurner
Subject: Interesting article on inertia and gyroscopes
Question: There was a fascinating article called "The Forgotten Mystery of Inertia" by Tony Rothman published in the November/December 2017 issue of the American Scientist. Dr. Rothman currently teaches Applied Physics at New York University. He has previously taught at Princeton and Harvard, among other places. Rothman says that physicists don't agree on how inertia works. Rothman also suggests that most of them are ignoring the problem. Here's a link to the article:

 How strange is his actual question, which is to do with 'How do gyroscopes remain is a fixed state?" The answers given pretty much go off the wall,
But the simple answer is that angular momentum is increased until it resists an x force that would disturb it. You may read the above article to further understand angular momentum.
