### Question about 'gryscopic' forces

Posted:

**Thu May 05, 2016 2:17 am**while porting this, and trying to grasp some of the math, especially to do with rotation results of collisions. There are things called 'gyroscopic' as variables, and they refer to the velocity of rotation and acceleration... is there any of the math in there for handling precession; or when applying a force to an axis of a rotating thing that the resulting force is 90 degrees offset from the input?

I don't really know what the math looks like; a good wikipedia article on the math would be nice to have Maybe it is there in bullet?
