How can I determine the direction of the force acting due to gyroscopic couple on a car's wheels when it is taking a turn to it's left side?

  • $\begingroup$ as much i know and what i interpreted from your question that will have no effect on the car as they are tooo light weighted $\endgroup$ – Dimensionless Jul 21 '13 at 14:40
  • $\begingroup$ it does have an effect along with centrifugal force.It can overturn a car. $\endgroup$ – M.Tarun Jul 23 '13 at 13:52
  • $\begingroup$ is it normal wheel or you are trying to attach the gyroscope to it $\endgroup$ – Dimensionless Jul 23 '13 at 16:42

The direction of reaction on the wheels of car or any body can be simply known by rotating the axis of spin to the axis of reactive gyroscopic couple.

Since the vehicle moves along a curved path having radius while taking turn,the centrifugal force acts radially outward.
