Low level SATA failure?

Lets examine the low-level physics of a SATA hard-drive.

Surely the C/H/S is fixed, like the ManufctrID, and is read,
even if the device fails to turn?

Is it true that a HD, which is moved while running, experiences
centrifugal forces [gyroscopic] which when forced, by eg. the
humans hand, is likely to damage the device?

To move the device, it should first stop and park.
Then the gyoscopic forces have stopped.

Or can it tolerate movement?

==TIA.
