###### Question details

Figure 3 shows a mechanism made up of two links AB and BC. The
two links are pivoted

together at B. End C is pivoted to a fixed point while end A moves
in a horizontal

direction along line XX as shown. At the position shown, the two
links are perpendicular

to each other and end A has a constant velocity of 500mm/s in the
direction shown.

At this instant in time calculate

(a) The rotational speed of link AB

(15 marks)

(b) The rotational speed of link BC

(15 marks)

(c) The angular acceleration of link AB and the angular
acceleration of link BC

(30 marks)
