EDISON’S WINDMILL I LEARNING EXPERIENCE We decided to apply the gear assembly mechanic principle in the construction of a windmill.
How gears works? A gear is a kind of wheel which is serrated. In this case the gear let to the machine to produce movement which could control the speed of it. In the movement that each gear do we can observe how each tooth is engaging and another disenganging. Also the size of each gear would affect the speed between the input and output. The first one is the one with the movement and the second one is the one that “drives” it.
DOES THE SIZE AFFECTS? The bigger the gear is, the slower the system’s speed would be. And, in the same way, the smaller the gear, the faster the system would move. Types. On the Basis of Arrangement of Shafts of
On the Basis of the Types of Gearing
On the Basis of the Position of Teeth on the Gear.
NonIntersecting and NonParallel
Rack and Pinion
MODEL: Based in this model with tried to do our model on Edison:
PROGRAM: It is a basic programming system because we just wanted to make one gare moves slow.
THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS :
