Abstract:

At the present time several experimental models have been made of land gyroscopic compasses, whose sensing components are suspended in a liquid and centered on a core bearing. We cite a theoretical investigation of the motion of the sensing component of the compass at an arbitrary position of the center of gravity and of the center of volume.
