A Sprockets is a toothed wheel upon which a chain rides. Contrary to popular opinion, a sprocket is not a gear.
Material of Construction:
They are mainly available in following forms
• Cast iron sprockets
• Stainless steel sprockets
• Alloy steel sprockets
• Sintered metal sprockets
• Carbon steel sprockets

Two sprockets are connected to each other with a chain. On one end of the chain is a small sprocket located on the engine that rotates due to the force of the engine. On the other end of the chain is a larger sprocket located attached to the rear axle. This provides both forward and reverse momentum. The amount of rotation of each sprocket depends on the rotation speed of the driving sprockets, the number of teeth of the driving sprockets and the number of teeth of the driven sprockets.
The sprocket must be inspected once a month for wear and if the teeth are worn down or are broken they should be replaced. The sprockets and the chain must be lubricated with chain lube such as bell ray.
A Sprockets is a profiled wheel with teeth that meshes with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material. It is distinguished from a gear in that sprockets are never meshed together directly, and differs from a pulley in that sprockets have teeth and pulleys are smooth.
Sprockets are most commonly used in bicycles. In a cycle, a chain runs between two sprockets. When the paddle is pushed, the front gear is turned and that meshes with the links in the chain. The chain moves and meshes with the links in the rear gear that is attached to the rear wheel. This enables the bicycle to move.
