1) Can output force>input force?
2) If w1:w2=n1:n2 (w is speed, n is the number of teeth on the gear), in a gear combination, with the same input force, can I get a higher output speed?  Is this mechanical system energy conservative?
3) How to amplify the speed by using gears?
4) How to amplify the force by useing gears?
