Hi guy(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I try to understand how should I calculate the force on a wheel with known radius which is driven by a motor with a known torque and rational speed, in between three gears with known radiuses. Does the number of gears matter for the torque and so for the force on the wheel? (100% efficiency)

thx
