Gears (or 'cogs') are wheels whose perimeter is made up of evenly sized and spaced teeth. The teeth of one gear mesh with those of an adjoining one and transmit rotary motion between the two gears.
A gear will always rotate in an opposite direction to the gear it meshes with.
If both gears have the same number of teeth, they will rotate at the same speed, however if they have different numbers of teeth then the gear with fewer teeth will rotate more quickly - i.e. the Velocity Ratio (or ‘Gear Ratio’) of a pair of meshing gears is given as the Number of Teeth of the Driver Gear divided by the Number of Teeth of the Driven Gear.
