How Does A Spinning Top Work

A spinning top is a toy that is made to rotate about its spindle, or axis of rotation. The physics of a spinning top involves several key concepts, including rotational motion, angular momentum, and gyroscopic precession. Rotational motion refers to the movement of an object as it rotates around a fixed point, in this case its vertical axis. The speed of an object’s rotational motion is called its angular velocity, which is measured in units … Read more
