If gear A has 30 teeth and is spinning at 800rpm, gear B has 50 teeth and gear C has 20 teeth and gear D is spinning at 300rpm. How many teeth does gear D have?

rpms if all in a row

If any are on the same shaft. I do not have your picture.

B 800*(30/50)

C 800*(30/50)*(50/20)

D 800*(30/50)*(50/20)*(20/N) = 300

or more easily since all teeth are the same size

800*(30/N) = 300

N = 80

Now you tell me !

B = 800*30/50 = 480 rpm

so

C = 480 rpm

D = 480 (20/N) = 300

N = 32

Think of the body all alone in space

Add up all the force vectors on it and equate that to mass times acceleration.
