Gears

About this Laboratory:

In this laboratory, you will explore how the number of teeth on a gear and its number of rotations affect the rotation of other interconnected gears. First you are asked to do an initial hands-on activity in the pre-laboratory to get a feel for what you will see in the applet. Then you will use technology to assist with further discoveries. Numbers given in the applet are approximations. All explanations are to be made using sentences.
