    Explanation:

    Gear is a mechanical components designed for transfer of torque or power from one shaft to the other. Gear designing is a costly affair. The configuration and geometry of gears are such that its designing is tedious task. A lot of precision is required to design a gear. This is why factor of safety of gears are always kept higher.

    The higher factor of safety accounts for durability of gears. Gears once made can used for about 200 hundred years. The wear and tear are less and the failure of gears is avoided. And hence whole machine failure can be avoided.
