What we have in this video is an interesting scientific experiment as conducted by Veritasium channel. They will have a flywheel weighing 40 pounds attached on a one meter long shaft. The challenge is to lift the flywheel horizontally which is really impossible until they spin the wheel to a few thousand RPM. After spinning, they lift the wheel and they were able to lift it with no ease. It is not a magic trick of course and there is a scientific explanation behind it. They called it as the gyroscopic precession which makes the wheel look weightless. The weight of the wheel creates a torque which pushes it around in a circle that’s why it doesn’t fall on the ground. Check this interesting experiment below.
