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

    B and C are on the same shaft

    Now you tell me !

  • physics -


  • physics -

    B = 800*30/50 = 480 rpm
    C = 480 rpm
    D = 480 (20/N) = 300
    N = 32

    thank you

    You are welcome :)

    How exactly does Free Body Diagrams work?

  • physics -

    Think of the body all alone in space
    Add up all the force vectors on it and equate that to mass times acceleration.
