In helical gears, the distance between similar faces of adjacent teeth along a helix on the pitch cylinders normal to the teeth, is called
(a) normal pitch
(b) axial pitch
(c) diametral pitch
The question was posed to me during an interview.
I want to ask this question from Standard Proportions of Gear Systems topic in portion Toothed Gearing & Gear Trains of Machine Kinematics
