Cogs have a certain number of hit points (HP). Cog Levels range from 1 to 12. Level 1 cogs having the least amount of HP, only 6, while level 12 cogs have the most HP, 200. Cogs go up four levels to reach their maximum.
The chart below shows how much HP each cog level has and what gag can destroy it at once. Some of the gags must be organic in order to defeat the cog as shown for the gag on Level 12 cogs. For a longer and more specific list of organic benefits, click here.

The formula for a cog's resistance to gags, where X is the cog level, is ((X+1) times (X+2)). For a Level 4 cog, the health is 5 * 6 (30); for a Level 9 cog, it's 10 * 11 (110). Just multiply the next two higher numbers beyond the cog's level, and you've got their number... unless it's a Level 12 cog!
Level 12 cogs are extra-tough because they have fringe benefits! Instead of the mere 182 (13 *14) health one might expect from the usual formula, they get an extra 18 -- 200 in total.
