Simple Exercises:
Instant Center Method
In these exercises take direct measurements from the figures for link lengths and the
magnitudes of velocity vectors.
If it is stated that the angular velocity is known, assume
±
=
1
rad/sec CCW, unless it is stated otherwise.

The following exercises (P.8 – P.10) are not typical velocity analysis problems for using the
instant center method.
They are provided to make you think, to apply the fundamentals of the IC
method back and forth, and to better understand the concept and the meaning of the instant
centers.
The solution to some of the following four exercises can be tricky!
