GYROSCOPE- CONSERVATION OF ANGULAR MOMENTUM<br />
Example of Inertia<br />
Angular momentum of flywheel lies along axis of rotation & due to negligible friction it remains constant in magnitude & direction. Axis orientation remains fixed in space. Applications include inertial guidance systems for missiles & air & space craft.
