Unformatted text preview: e universal joint drive shaft drives a simple slider-crank mechanism. Compare the rotations at different
points in the drive shaft with the applied rotation. Also, show the linear motion caused by the slider-crank satisfied
the appropriate equation. Figure 239.1 Shaft-driven Slider-Crank Mechanism

At "a": ROTX = 2π rad. (= 360°) Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
The rotation of 2π rad., which is applied at node "a", is first transmitted through the three shafts, existing in the
x-y plane, that are joined together by the MPC184 universal joints. The rotation is compared with the resulting
rotation at node "c". This graph should result in an expression determined by the following function:
α2 = arc tan (tanα 1/cosβ)
α1 = the angle of twist of the drive shaft
