When a gyroscope is precessing around an axis due to a certain applied torque, if we look at the center of mass , it is going around in circular motion. So there must be some force which provides the necessary centripetal force? What is this force?
If it is the tension that is producing this force shouldnt the string be inclined at an angle instead of being vertical.
And in this case is it really friction that provides the centripetal force?
