    i have been given ap project by my teachers to show the ratio between velocity and torque .
    i.e i have to show the gear ratio in my project.
    can some one tell me whether the ratio b/w torque and velocity remains constant if we use different number of gears .
    also if some one can give me any advise regarding my project
    shall be very thankful

    Re: project

    Do you have a bicycle, or access to one with gears?
    Gears on a bike can be used very conveniently to show how velocity, torque (AND POWER, which is very important in this respect) are related. Google "bicycle gear experiments". I did and found pages and pages of stuff.
