Hello everyone

A gear is defined as a component that is used to transmit rotational force to another device.

The interlocking of the teeth in a pair of meshing gears means that their circumferences necessarily move at the same rate of linear motion.

The rotational speed is proportional to a wheel's circumferential speed divided by its radius, that's why the larger the radius of a gear, the slower will be its rotational speed, when meshed with a gear of given size and speed.
