Asked by: Eagle
Subject: How to calculate speed?
Question: If you add or subtract mass (weight) from the outer edge of a gyro, what is the calculation to determine the new speed of the spin of the gyro.

Another question, like in the merry-go-round analagy, what is the calculation of the speed of the spin of the gyro if you move mass (weight) towards the axis from the outer edges of the gyro?
