Click on the buttons on the left in the table above
How the gears in the transmission are put together
Inside the planet carrier: Note the two sets of planets
Ratio = -R/S = -72/30 = -2.4:1
Second Gear
1 + R/S = 1 + 36/30 = 2.2:1
1 / (1 + S/R) = 1 / (1 + 36/72) = 0.67:1
Third Gear
Ratio = 1 / (1 + S/R) = 1 / ( 1 + 36/72) = 0.67:1
Ratio = -R/S = 72/36 = 2.0:1
