Extremely clear and well organized, I thought they way you showed the different gears side-by-side was especially effective. It would be good to more clearly explain the tradeoff between speed and torque, but great job overall!

Thank you very much, Huku! Our team did try to keep it very simple and easy to follow so that we could show it to some of our newer students.
