First of all, let us find the number of teeth on the sunwheel D (T D). Let dA , dB , dC and dD be
the pitch circle diameters of wheels A , B , C and D respectively. From Fig. 13.29, dD

Since the module is same for all teeth and the number of teeth are proportional to their pitch
circle diameters, therefore
TD + T C + T B = T A or T D = T A – (T C + T B) = 60 – (20 + 15) = 25 The table of motions is given below :

x +y=0 or y=–x ...(ii) From equations (i) and (ii),
x = – 563.8 and y = 563.8 Speed of shaft X
Since the shaft X will make the same number of revolutions as the arm, therefore
Speed of shaft X , ωX = Speed of arm = y = 563.8 rad/s Ans.
Holding torque on wheel D
We know that torque on A = P/ωA = 130 × 103 / 740 = 175.7 Nm
and Torque on X = P/ωX = 130 × 103/563.8 = 230.6 Nm
∴ Holding torque on wheel D
= 230.6 – 175.7 = 54.9 Nm Ans. Example 13.23. Fig. 13.30 shows some details of a compound epicyclic gear drive where I
is the driving or input shaft and O is the driven or output shaft which carries two arms A and B
rigidly fixed to it. The arms carry planet wheels which mesh with annular wheels P and Q and the
sunwheels X and Y. The sun wheel X is a part of Q. Wheels Y and Z are fixed to the shaft I. Z engages
with a planet wheel carried on Q and this planet wheel engages the fixed annular whe...
