The motor turns the small gear and that turns the big gear but you have to turn the little gear many times to turn the big gear.
About the NPN Circuit Pt 2
the voltage goes thru a resistor to the collector pin of the transistor and there is another resistor that goes to the negative bus of the breadboard. there is also voltage going to the base pin of the resistor which completes the circuit by telling the emitter pin to send out voltage.
About the Pushbutton LED Circuit
when the push button is pushed the circuit it closed makeing it turn on but when the push button is not pushed the circuit open makeing it turn off
