Sequel



How many clicks of the big wheel correspond to a full rotation of the small wheel?

How many revolutions will the small wheel make for every revolution the big wheel makes?

How rotations must the smallest cog make until the largest makes one complete rotation?


how many revolutions will the smallest wheel go with one revolution of the largest one?





If I turn the large gear once around, how many times will the smallest gear turn?




If the big one goes around once clockwise, how much doe the little one spinâ€”and in which direction?

How many times do I have to turn the smallest wheel to get the largest wheel to go around exactly 10 times?


How many rotations does the small gear have to do before the large one rotates once?

What is the ratio of the gear diameter to the number of teeth on the cog?

How fast does the small gear have to go, in order to keep up with the big gear?

How many times does the smallest wheel turn every time the biggest wheel turns once?



How many times does the little gear need to turn for the big one to turn once?

What do you need to measure/determine in order to determine the rate of small gear in relation to the biggest gear?

How many times would the smaller gear rotate with one rotation of the big gear?

One revolution of the big gear is equivalent to how many revolutions of each of the other gears?



If the crank for this is on the other side, where is the fun in this activity? You would not be able to see the gears turn.Who designed this
