a) ω_{p} x r

b) ω_{g} x R

c) 0

d) ω_{g} x r

Explanation: We know that v = r. ω. The rolling velocity is also represented by the same formula ω

_{p}x r; where ω

_{p}is the angular velocity of the pinion and r is the radius of the smaller gear. Rolling velocity is also called as pitch line velocity.
