  Gear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gears of differing size are often used in pairs for a mechanical advantage, allowing the torque of the driving gear to produce a larger torque in the driven gear at lower speed, or a smaller torque at higher speed.
The larger gear is known as a wheel and the smaller as a pinion.
This is a gear that resembles a screw, with parallel helical teeth, and mates with a normal spur gear.

 Howstuffworks "How Gears Work"
Gears are used in tons of mechanical devices.
For instance, an electric screwdriver has a very large gear reduction because it needs lots of torque to turn screws, but the motor only produces a small amount of torque at a high speed.
For instance, in the differential between the rear wheels of your car, the power is transmitted by a shaft that runs down the center of the car, and the differential has to turn that power 90 degrees to apply it to the wheels.
