To understand torque-induced precession, we must start by looking at the relationship between angular momentum and torque. Angular momentum is a vector quantity dependent on an object鈥檚 moment of inertia and angular velocity. Torque is also a vector quantity that represents the amount of force necessary to rotate an object along a given axis. These two quantities are directionally perpendicular to one another. The torque causes a change in direction of the angular momentum, but the magnitude remains unchanged. Thus, the bicycle wheel is able to spin gyroscopically, or precess, along its horizontal rotational axis in opposition to its vertical rotational axis.

Moose really are That Big
Non-Canadians about the picture of a moose in my post about animal sizes: Moose aren鈥檛 that big, that鈥檚 photoshopped!

.
For context about how big moose are, in Canada it鈥檚 considered common knowledge that moose are so massive that if you come across one on the road you鈥檙e more likely to die from crashing into one than they are. It鈥檚 legit safer to swerve into a tree than a moose.
