This new study on effects of gyroscope demonstrates the action on the spinning disc that the eight interrelated inertial torques system generated by its rotating masses. The physics behind this inertial torques manifest the action of the resistance and precession torques, which physics are described and explained. The latest research on the gyroscopic properties revealed the deactivation of the inertial torques that contradicts the principles of classical mechanics. Practical tests of the blocking of the gyroscope motion around one axis displays the deactivation of inertial torques acting around the axis of the load torque. In this condition, the gyroscope with one side support turns down under the action of its weight and frictional forces produced by the action of the precession torque and weight of the movable components. The precession torque is presented by the change in the angular momentum, while other inertial torques is deactivated. These phenomena present the new unknown gyroscopic effect that needs a deep study and explanation. This work considers the attempt to describe the physics of the deactivation of the gyroscopic inertial torques around two axes and the action of the precession torque in a case of the gyroscope motion around one axis.

Key words: Gyroscope theory, inertial torque, deactivation of inertial torques
