Unformatted text preview: the outer gear is Fxed. % 6. Given the four-bar linkage in the following diagram where 2 = 45 , r 1 = 600 mm, r 2 = 140 mm, r 3 = 690 mm, r 4 = 400 mm, a 4 = 200 mm, and BO 4 C = 45 (constant). a) Write down the loop closure equations. b) Determine the angle, 3 . c) Determine the coordinates of point C. r 3 % % r 1 r 2 r 4 A B C O 2 O 4 x y 3 2 4 a 4 7. Using the Newton-Rahpson method, determine the position of the slider for the following off-set slider crank mechanism where r 2 = 2 inches, r 3 = 11 inches, e = 1 inch, and 2 = 120 .
