Lab 8 Gear Trains and Speed Reducers I. Introduction/Purpose - The objective of the lab is to learn gear ratios, gear trains, and the procedure on selecting a speed reducer. You also will cover the importance of a differential gear system. II. Approach/Methodology Exercise 1: A) For the given gears, fill out the remainder of the table with the nomenclatures of the gears. Run the gears at 3 different speeds and record their speed ratios. Then solve for the overall speed ratio. B) Using the catalog, select a speed reducer for the given application and complete the questions that follow. III. Data Exercise 1: A) .
