A disk with mass m = 5.2 kg and radius R = 0.44 m hangs from a rope attached to the ceiling. The disk spins on its axis at a distance r = 1.59 m from the rope and at a frequency f = 18.6 rev/s (with a direction shown by the arrow).
1. What is the magnitude of the angular momentum of the spinning disk?
2. What is the torque due to gravity on the disk?
3. What is the period of precession for this gyroscope?

I know I'm not just supposed to flat out ask questions I'm supposed to have some work but i was hopping that someone on here could teach me step by step on how to solve it? So that I further understand it.
