I've been trying to search for the specs of the motor, but unsuccessfully. There is no label on the motor that has its specs. My teacher says I need to experiment. I don't like to experiment, I like to calculate. So I want to verify if this is right. Imagine this ratio 50-20-40-10, 10 being on the drive axle and 50 on the motor:
V1 = 5/2 * V1
V3 = 2 * V2
V4 = 4 * V3
And by substitution property: V4 = 20 * V1
That is the ratio of the the speed of the first gear and the speed of the last gear, as you can see it is dramatic.
But I figured since A = F/m then I could find the mass of each gear and if it is greater, then the acceleration is lower.
m2 = 2/5 * m1
m3 = 2 * m2
m4 = 1/4 m3
And again by substitution property: m4 = 1/5 * m1
Phew, that was kinda hard to write. You get what I'm saying? The speed gets 20 times greater, and since the mass is 1/5 at the end, it accelerates faster. Am I right?
