Let's say I have a spinning steel ball that I have somehow managed to be completely free in all axes of movement. If I fire a BB at it with enough force on a north-south (to the ball) angle, what will happen. Will it start to wobble by a certain amount? Will it change it's orientation and then stay there? I welcome complex answers, but please summarize them in laymen's terms as well.
When I say north-south, I'm referring to the earth so that means it would be fired along a plane of the axis of the spin at about 45 degrees (or whatever) to the axis if that makes any sense. In other words, not with or opposing the spin, just perpendicular to it at an angle.
