The 2 gear rpm equation calculates the RPMs of a second gear when the RPMs and number of teeth are known for the first gear and the number of teeth of the second gear is known,             two gears

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

• (RPM1) Rotation rate of gear 1
• (T1) Teeth in gear 1
• (T2) Teeth in gear 2

Rotation Rate of Gear 2: The calculator returns the rotation rate in revolutions per minute.  However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math / Science

The formula for the relationship between interlocked gears and their revolution speed is:

RPM_1 * T_1 = RPM_2 * T_2
