The newly redesigned Bicycle Gyroscope is perfect for getting students interested and involved in understanding rotational motion. The ME-6837 is extremely rugged for years of use, featuring a solid 1/2″ steel shaft but also lightweight at just 6 lbs. Cushioned hand grips, a pull-cord with handle and an included suspension cord make it simple and easy to use.
Used to demonstrated the fun and fascinating properties of a gyroscope such as precession it will make a complex topic visible. It can also be used in conjunction with the PASCO rotating chair (ME-6856) for an attention getting demonstration of the conservation of angular momentum.
There’s even room between the flange and wheel to insert a photogate (ME-9498A) for more qualitative activities.
