A gear with 30 teeth turns a gear with 5 teeth. How many turns will the driven gear turn for every turn the drive gear makes? Is this type of gear train usedto increase force or speed and distance?



The tumber of teeth engaged is the same for both gears, but 30 teeth (1 turn) of the driven gear turns the small gear six times.

30/5 = 6

The type of gear train described increases angular speed
