Unformatted text preview: kinematic coefficients were checked using the method of instant centers as well as the finite difference method. The coupler point P was analyzed as well where a plot of the coupler curve was generated. The velocity and acceleration of the coupler point was also determined. It was determined that an initial value of the angle of link 3 between 90 and 100 degrees would produce a coupler curve that did not cross over itself....
