# Gyrocompass Therory Systems

 What is mechanical device that has a spinning mass, and a mounting system that allows the spinning mass to be pointed in any direction? Gyroscope What are the 3 basic parts of a gyroscope? RotorGimbalsFrame (Axles) What are the 3 degrees of freedom? TiltTurnSpin Which axles are X, Y, and Z? Turn = ZTilt = YSpin = X What is described by the rotor spinning in one direction, reguardless of how the frame is moved? Rigidy of plane What are the factors affecting rigidy of plane? SpeedWeightShape What is described as the result force will always take place 90 degrees in the direction of rotation from the applied force? Presession What is described as any force operating through the center of gravity, will not cause the rotor to turn, tilt, but move as a unit? Force of translation Horizontal earth rate is _____ at the equator, and _____ at the poles. Max at the equator, and Min at the poles Vertical earth rate is ____ at the equator, and _____ at the poles.
