    Precess generally refers to the phenomenon in which the axis of a spinning object (like a gyroscope, planet, or electron) "wobbles" or slowly changes direction due to an external force (like gravity). This rotational motion describes a path much like a circle or ellipse. This phenomenon can be observed in various fields such as astronomy, physics, and engineering.
