Simple Foucault Precession Package
written by Praveen Bharadhwaj
The Simple Foucault Precession Launcher package shows seven examples of a particle moving on a plane that is inclined at a fixed angle with respect to the xy plane and rotating at a constant angle with respect to the z axis.  This simple system is used to model the rate of Foucault precession.

The materials in this resource are described in an article titled "Foucault precession manifested in a simple system."

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.7 of Java (JRE).
