### Firepit Design

Firepit Assignment

### Reduction Gears Exercise

For the combination of wheels shown, draw each case using AutoCAD to answer the following questions::

 1. If  we desire B to turn twice for every turn of A, what is RC, XC, and YC? 2. If  we desire B to turn once for every turn of A, what is RC, XC, and YC? Also be prepared to discuss the following: ·        Which direction (CW or CCW) will B turn if A turns CCW as shown? ·        How would you make B turn once for each turn of A using 3 wheels as shown? ·        How could you make B turn the opposite direction of A? ·        If these wheels were gears would it make any difference?
