Practice Problem 2-3 Back | Index | Next

Given: In a gear train, Gear A drives Gear B. Due to the gear contact, Gear A applies a force of FA = 900 N on Gear B. The gear teeth on both gears are of length L = 25 mm and the bearing angle is f = 14°.

Req'd: Determine the maximum bending moment Mmax in the gear tooth [N·m] assuming the entire length of the gear tooth is the effective length for bending.

Mmax =  N·m  (1%)
