Chain lubricant must be applied to two gears connected by a chain. The two gears are of different size. The question is now, if it is better to apply the lubricant at the larger or smaller gear, if we wanted to minimize the amount of lubricant lost due to centrifugal force. The math: Centrifugal force: F= V^2 / R Since the two gears are connected by a chain, V should be the same. Therefore my math intuition says that the larger of the gears would exert less centrifugal force on the lubricant. Am i correct in this analysis?
