    at a different speed ratio or with an intermittent motion. Linear drives include leadscrews, conveyor belts, cranes, and rack-and-pinion drives. Rotary drives include all types of gearheads and (toothed) belt constructions. It typically takes just a few parameters to describe the conversion of power

    that required from start to full speed. The greater the reserve torque, the more rapid the acceleration. Drive systems that use gear reducers have parts that rotate at different speeds. To calculate acceleration torque required for these systems, rotating components must be reduced to a common base
  • What is it -- SUV, truck, or UFO?
    might ask, how is this different from other sport-utility vehicles? First of all, the Aztek wide-track chassis, with a 62.7-in.-wide front and a rear track of 63.8-in., is wider than most mid-size SUVs such as the Dodge Durango.
