The gear program is a small program that can create a gear in an OpenOffice drawing. By command line, you can change the number of teeth on the gear. By editing the source a little, you can change the way the teeth look.
(n) A toothed wheel device that acts as a mechanical linkage to transmit power and motion between machine parts. Most gears transfer rotary motion from one shaft to another. They change the location and can change both the orientation and speed of the rotary motion. Certain gear types transform rotary motion into linear (reciprocating) motion.
A rotating wheel-like object with teeth around its rim. A gear is used to transmit force to another gear with matching teeth. A screw called a worm or a toothed shaft called a rack may replace one of the wheels. Gears of different sizes can be used to change the speed of a mechanism. If a gear with many teeth drives a gear with fewer teeth, there is an increase of speed. If a gear with fewer teeth drives a gear with more teeth, there is a decrease in speed.
Wheel-like part with teeth cut into the rim. When one gear meshes with another gear, it causes the second gear to drive the other and in this way transmits power. When the gears are different sizes (different number of teeth on each gear) the mechanical average is changed.
The mechanism on a bike that changes its rate of motion via a combination of front chainring and rear sprocket; 'low' gears are easier to pedal (usually used when riding uphill), and 'high' gears are harder to pedal (usually used on flats or for faster speed).
The understructure of an airplane which supports the airplane on land or water; wheels, skis, or pontoons. Retractable gear folds up into the airplane in flight. Gear that does not retract is called "fixed."
1. A toothed wheel or disk, which is designed to mesh with another by interlocking. 2. System of two or more gears meshed together so that the motion of one is passed to the others. 3. Chain driven mechanism that transmits motion and power when it turns.
A gear is a wheel with teeth around its circumference, the purpose of the teeth being to mesh with similar teeth on another mechanical device -- possibly another gear -- so that force can be transmitted between the two devices in a direction tangential to their surfaces. A non-toothed wheel can transmit some tangential force but will slip if the force is large; teeth prevent slippage and allow the transmission of large forces.
is the generic term for all physical equipment, of whatever type of development. Gear does not include such built-in things as cybernetics, magic tattoos, or genetic modifications. In general, if it can be stolen, it's gear. See Also: Device
The equipment carried by trotters and pacers. Gear can generally be split into three categories: pads on the legs to prevent self-inflicted injury; equipment to balance a horse in its stride; and equipment to correct waywardness or erratic behaviour. The equipment also helps a driver maintain control. Some horses are not as well-mannered or gaited as others and may require a lugging pole, shadow roll, headcheck, shin boots and/or knee boots.
In the animated series Static Shock, Gear (real name Richard "Richie" Osgood Foley) is the best friend and confidant of Virgil "Static" Hawkins. He was the first person to learn of Virgil's powers after Virgil clued him in about them, and Richie suggested that Virgil should become a superhero.
Gear is a graphic novel written and illustrated by Doug Ten Napel, the creator of Earthworm Jim. It was published in six issues by Fireman Press Ltd, a production company and publishing house which also published . Previously, TenNapel had written an issue of a Scud: the Disposable Assassin spin-off comic entitled Tales from the Vending Machine for Fireman.
Gear was an English language lad's mag published by son-of-Penthouse Bob Guccione, Jr. in the United Kingdom devoted chiefly to revealing pictorials of popular singers, B-movie actresses, and models, along with articles on gadgets, cars, fashion, guy tales of sex, and sports.
A gear is a transmission step with a certain speed or reduction ratio. Automatic and continuous transmissions are prohibited. A reverse gear is mandatory. The number of gears can vary between four and seven.
