Rack and Pinion Gears
October 17, 2021
Today I learned about rack and pinion gears. Rack and pinion gears change a spinning motion into a sliding motion. I also learned about using the light sensor to trigger the motion.
First, I wanted to set up the rack and pinion gears. I saw these in the kit and I wanted to learn how to use them.
Using trial and error I worked out how to hold these together but let them slide back and forth.
