Caption: Spinning gyroscope. A gyroscope is a spinning disc mounted in gimbals, whose rapid spinning means it resists changes to its spin axis caused by the movement of its frame. This is due to the conservation of angular momentum. Gyroscopes are used in guidance and orientation systems due to this property.
