Chapter 6 Solving Algebraic Equations with C/C++ Background , A 4-bar linkage is a complex mechanism that allows us to convert simple rota- tional input motions (say from a motor or water wheel) to a wide variety of output motions. The configuration above is known as a rocker-crank where complete turns of the crank or input result in a rocking motion in the output link. But how do we determine what input angle maps to a desired output angle? Consider a general 4-bar linkage with the following geometries: Given the above link lengths and angles, we can derive the relationship between the input angle and output angle using vector analysis. Consider vectors defined along each link such that: ~a + ~ b = ~ c + ~ d 71
