Motion of a Point Mass in Spherical Polars

This is the simplest way of analyzing the problem. The intricacies of the last note can be removed by focusing on the centre of mass of the gyroscope. The rotating frame defined by the gyroscope will then be used to find whether the gyroscope’s own spinning can ever defeat the force of gravitation on it centre of mass. The ECE2 fluid dynamic force can be introduced into the problem.
