Unformatted text preview: 3 was found. This is possible because the magnitude of both force F 53 and W 3 are known. It is also known that F 23 acts in the y-direction only. The force polygon found using the resultant force and the known angle of F 23 allows forces F 13 and F 23 to be found. Link 2 was the last link analyzed. Link 2 is a 4 force and a torque member. From the analysis above, the magnitude and orientation of both F 32 and F 42 are known. The weight is given. Using this information, the resultant force of F 42 and F 32 was found. Adding in the weight allowed for the force polygon used to find F 12 to be constructed. Also, since the line of action for F 42 is known, a perpendicular line is drawn from point O 2 to the line of action for F 42 (shown in blue) in order to compute the input torque. The input torque is computed using the distance and the resultant force....
