What equation for acceleration? Polar Determine r dot and r double dot. Determine θ dot and θ double dot. 0 = θ Determine values at 30 degrees Substitute values into acceleration equation Could transform this into Cartesian coordinates – try to do this For the mechanism shown at right, the slotted bar rotates

Unformatted text preview: with constant angular velocity ϖ = 10 rad/s and the radial position of point A is controlled by the shape of the cam. The path is described by the following equation: r = 1 + 0.5 cos 2 feet What is the acceleration of point A when θ = 30 o ?
