Chain and Sprocket

Fri, 1 Oct 2010

Chains are used to connect gears. They work in a similar way to pulleys but with a positive drive rather than a reliance on friction. Gears which are connected by chain turn in the same direction unlike gears which mesh against each other.

      Come on Rob, what are you

      Come on Rob, what are you playing at? I'm trying to do a flipping GCSE and you're failing to reach your websites high reputation by failing to upload a simple animation, a 2 year old could make. I am very disappointed since i get excited over motion animations such as a chain and sprocket, please will you get your act together and upload this simple animation.

      kind regards
