The figure is a schematic of the entire linkage for a large power shovel used in strip mining. It can cut into a bank 20 m high and can dump to a height of 14.5 m. Link 7 is connected to link 8 with a revolute joint. 11 7 8 16 10 12 14 15 17 9 2 18 13 5 3 4 6 n = 18 j = 24 11 7 8 16 10 12 14 15 17 9 2 18 13 N i =1 M = 3( n − j − 1) + ∑ fi = 3(18 − 24 − 1) + 24 = −21 + 24 = 3 6 Mobility = 3 Idle DOF = 0 5 3 4 2 Problem courtesy of Joseph Davidson, Arizona State University - 25 - Problem 1.23 In the figure is a portion of the support mechanism for the dipper on a large earth-moving machine used in removing overburden in strip mining operations. The fixed centers for the portion of the mechanism really move, but useful information can be obtained by observing the dipper motion relative to the &quot;frame&quot; as shown in the sketch. Both links 4 and 5 are mounted at O4 . Links 4 and 6 are parallel and of equal length. The dipper is moved by a hydraulic cylinder driving crank 5 about its fixed cylinder. Determine the number of degrees of freedom of the mechanism.
