English term or phrase:rotating mass
Definition of a Gyro
It is well known that a spinning top will remain upright which it is set spinning at right speed, but as its speed of rotation slows down it eventually topples.
Any >rotating mass< has gyroscopic properties which produce special effects that it does not have if it is stationary. Masses which produce gyroscopic effects include jet engines, a spinning coin, a bicycle wheel, the earth, in fact any mass that rotates.
