In this blog post I’d like to look at these simple machines up close. I’ll explain how gears affect the properties of rotational motion and how the shape of their teeth is way more sophisticated than it may initially seem.

Really good overview of the details of gearing. Nice animations really help explain well.

This is an absolutely phenomenal 'explorable explanation'. It methodically layers concepts to foster understanding, deploys interactivity to build intuition, and on top of all that provides crisp, clear narrative on top of all of the amazing visualizations.

Gears – Bartosz Ciechanowski I’ve always been fascinated by mechanical gears. There is something captivating about the way their teeth come together to create a fluid, unified motion: In this blog post I’d like to look at these simple machines up close.

Movement is important in this article so most of the visualizations are animated – you can play and pause them by clicking on the button in their bottom left corner. By default the animations are enabled, but if you find them distracting, or you want to save power...
