I tried readin up on HSW and another resource about how differentials in automobiles work... and i am pretty confused.

at that site i found good diagrams of it. I understand why the "planet and sun" gears arent spinning when its going straight.

but I do not understand why they do spin when its turning and why the two wheels get different speed...

could anyone be kind enough to clarify this for me?

thanx in advanced!
