Question details

The next figure shows an axial cam used for the movement of a mass M. The movement is composed of a rise period (B) and of an equivalent fall period (B). Calculate the maximum value of the force Q in the follower rod of mass mp if the rotational speed of the cam is o. A return spring of rigidity K is inserted in the assembly. At the lower position, the spring is not compressed. The cam profile is given by the expression below where h is the rise. Describe and comment (in words) on each step of the solution. β) m, Figure 5: Cam
