From the experiment and information given during lab, we now understand the importance of a differential gear system, gear ratios, and gear trains. We also have improved our knowledge over the procedure required to select a speed reducer. Overall, we understand that gear reducers lower the speed between a motor and the part it will be driving and we are also aware that the gear ratio and gear type will be dependent on the application it will be used for. Real World Applications Gear reducers are widely used in industrial plants, for many applications including conveyors, cranes, elevators, mixers, and crushers Exercise I: Part A
