    1. A torque is a product of a force and a distance (lever arm). Work is also the product of a force and a distance. Yet, "torque" and "work" are different. What is it about the distances that make "torque" and "work" different?

    2. What is a gyroscope? What does the angular momentum has to do with a gyroscope? Provide examples of practical applications of gyroscopes.
