I have a gear train system where i have 3 gears meshing with each other (different sizes) gear A, B and C. Gear B is my input/driver and gears A and C are my output/driven. If i know the input RPM and input torque for gear B, what are the gear ratios/the amount of torque transmitted to gear A and C. I doubt that i can say that ratio between A and B = ratio between B and C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, would it be correct to say T_{A}+ T_{C}= T_{B}since gears A and C are in a sense parallel to each other. Use N for rpm and T for torque please. I would highly appreciate it if you just refrained from posting comments such "Google is a savior" and the sort.
