Excerpt from An hassle-free therapy of the idea of Spinning Tops and Gyroscopic Motion
The item of this booklet is to carry in the variety of the abler Mathematicians at our Public colleges and of First 12 months undergraduates on the Universities, an issue which has hitherto been thought of too tricky for any however the extra complex scholars in arithmetic, whereas even they've got in lots of instances didn't derive extra excitement from the research of spinning tops than is contained in filing the matter to the motion of a classy piece of Mathematical equipment which instantly, even though unintelligently, seems the proper result.
In this try and current an common, and whilst a systematic view of the topic, i've got extended a number of of the suggestive principles recommend in Dynamics of Rotation by way of Professor Worthington, to whom is due a wide debt of thank you for far liberal feedback and counsel within the past chapters, and for permission to borrow his article on Brennan's Monorail.
In my different critics i've been equally lucky. Dr. Besant, Fellow of St. John's university, Cambridge, learn and commented on numerous chapters of their first version of manuscript; and in dedicating this quantity to him i've got endeavoured to specific the curiosity within the topic, and the affection of it, which I owe to his inspiring educating. Professor Hopkinson of the Engineering Laboratory at Cambridge has additionally learn definite parts, whereas a lot advice has been rendered by means of my pal and overdue colleague Mr. W. M. web page, Fellow of Kings collage, Cambridge, with whom i've got spent many friendly hours discussing numerous issues. finally, the full paintings has been rigorously criticised by way of Mr. G. Bistwistle, Fellow and primary Mathematical Lecturer of Pembroke university, Cambridge, to whom my sincerest thank you are due for far time dedicated to the e-book and for plenty of priceless feedback.

In Fig. 6, the H/E values exhibited a similar tendency with hardness. 087. From the results of hardness and H/E, it can be suggested that the Ti–Si–B–C–N coating with Si target power up to 150W could provide a better wear-resistance with higher fracture toughness than that of Ti–Si–B–C–N coating with Si target power above 200W. Materials Science Foundations Vols. 7 Wear rate [x10 mm /(Nm)] Fig. 7(a) shows the friction coefficients of the Ti–Si–B–C–N coating against a WC-Co ball as a function of Si target power.
