A uniform sphere of mass m = 5.0 kg and radius R = 6.0 cm rotates with an angular velocity ω = 1250 rad/s about a horizontal axle passing through its centre and fixed on the mounting base by means of bearings. The distance between the bearings equals l = 15 cm. The base is set in rotation about a vertical axis with an angular velocity ω' = 5.0 rad/s. Find the modulus and direction of the gyroscopic forces.

Solution:
A uniform sphere of mass m = 5.0 kg and radius R = 6.0 cm rotates with an angula
