Number of teeth in pinion for any angle:

n = ( 2 Ca Pn cos α cos β ) / ( R cos β + cos α )

Number of teeth in gear formula:

N = n R

Pitch diameter of gear formula:

D = N / ( Pn cos α )

Pitch diameter of pinion formula:

d = n / ( Pn cos α )

Number of formed cutter (gear) Formula:

T = N / ( Pn cos3 α )

Number of formed cutter (pinion) Formula:

T = n / ( Pn cos3 α )

Lead of helix of gear formula:

L = π D cot α

Lead of helix of pinion formula:

l = π d cot β 

Where:

C = approximate center distance (in, mm),
Pn  = normal diametral pitch (in, mm),
N = number of teeth in large gear,
n = number of teeth in small gear,
α = angle of gear helix (deg),
β = angle of pinion helix (deg),
R = ratio of gear to pinion,
L = lead of helix on large gear (in, mm),
l = lead of helix on pinion (in, mm).
