Can anyone recommend a good reference book for explaining simple things like gear ratios, rpm, etc. for simple systems? I did take a class in college, I think it was Dynamics, but that was 20 years ago and I don't recall getting too deep into mechanical stuff. I'm involved in a movable bridge with a mechanical engineer and I feel stupid not knowing basic terminology - I'm a structural guy, so just looking for something that gives the basics.
