The diagram shows two fixed cogwheels which can only rotate around their own axis. A rack is inserted between the two cogwheels and is moved in the direction shown by the arrow. What are the directions of movement and velocities of the cogwheels?

    • Same direction, same velocities

    • Same direction, different velocities

    • Different directions, same velocities

    • Different directions, different velocities 


The grey cogwheel labelled 1 is being turned at a constant speed in a counterclockwise direction as shown in the diagram. The red cogwheel has 16 teeth while the rest of the cogwheels have 12 teeth. Please choose the sentence which correctly describes the rotation of the red cogwheel in comparison to cogwheel 1.

    • Clockwise, faster

    • Clockwise, slower

    • Counterclockwise, faster

    • Counterclockwise, slower

    • Counterclockwise, same speed
