The graphic in figure 1 defines many important terms for spur gears. These terms are valuable for the discussion

and analysis of gears.

Pitch circle - Theoretical circle on which all calculations are based. The diameter of the pitch circle is the

pitch diameter (d).

Circular pitch (p) - Related to the pitch diameter, this is the arc length between identical points on adjacent

gear teeth, along the pitch circle. It is related to the pitch diameter as follows:

πd

p= (1)

N

where N is the number of teeth in the gear. Another useful term, which is frequently used in specifying

1

gears is the diametral pitch (P), which is defined as:

N

P = (2)

d

The diametral pitch and circular pitch are related by P p = π. Two gears must have the same pitch,

and consequently, the same diametral pitch, in order to mesh.

Clearance (f ) - The clearance prevents the teeth of one gear from riding into bottom part of mating gear

(jamming).

Clearance circle - This circle is tangent to the addendum circle of the mating gear.

Face width (b) - The face width should be the same for all mating gears. Typically:

≤b≤ (3)

P P

h = a + bd (4)

h = hk + f (5)

Tooth thickness (t) - The tooth thickness measured at the pitch circle is equal to the width of space.

Below is a table with common dimensions of gear teeth, based on the diametral pitch (P ). The angles are the

pressure angles of the gear, which is discussed on the next page.

There are also several important definitions for two mating gears, shown in figure 2.

Pitch point (P) - Point at which gears contact. Pitch circles are mutually tangent at this point, as indicated

by line a-b.

Pressure angle (φ) - The angle at which the resultant force between the two gears acts. The pressure angle

is constant as the gears rotate for involute gears. This is represented by line c-d, the pressure line or

line of action. The pressure angle should be the same for mating gears.

Center distance (c) - The distance between the centers of two gears in a mesh. This is defined as:

N1 + N2

c = r1 + r2 = (6)

2P

where ri is the pitch radius and P is the same for both gears.

Base radius (rbi ) - The base radius is the radius of the base circle or clearance circle. The line representing

it in figure 2 is perpendicular to the pressure line where the pressure line is tangent to the base circle.

Therefore, the base circle radius can be defined with respect to the pitch radius (ri ):

rb = ri cos φ (7)

For review purposes, both figures on this handout are given on the next page, except the labels are removed,

so that they can be filled in independently. You will be quizzed on this information.
