Abstract
This experiment was designed to enable measurement of the precession rate of a
gyroscope and compare this rate to a determined theoretical value to demonstrate
conservation of momentum. This was done by applying torque to a spinning gyroscope

Abstract Introduction The objective of this experiment was to observe vibration of a mass-spring-damper system to determine and analyze the governing conditions and responses of that system. More specifically, by adjusting experimental conditions such as

Summers, Tsuzaki Abstract The harmonic motion of a system is critical to understand when developing or designing any system undergoing vibration. This experiment is designed to evaluate how different factors in the system such as mass and energy input can
