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