Unformatted text preview: Measure the values of Θ 3 and Θ 4 for each configuration. 2) For Θ 2 = 90 degrees use the law of sines and the law of cosines to solve for Θ 3 and Θ 4 for one of the configurations. 3) Use the closed form solution (also referred to as Freudenstein’s equation) to solve for Θ 3 and Θ 4 when Θ 2 = 90 degrees. 4) Set up and carry out the Newton-Raphson iterative procedure to solve for Θ 3 and Θ 4 when Θ 2 = 90 degrees. Use the initial estimates given above and be sure to show all steps for each iteration. Continue to iterate until Θ 3 and Θ 4 converge to within 0.01 degrees. 5) Write a general computer program using Matlab which uses Newton-Raphson iteration to solve for Θ 3 and Θ 4 of a four bar linkage, given initial estimates for these variables and given the input value Θ 2 and the link lengths. To check your program, use the initial estimates given above and solve for Θ 3 and Θ 4 when Θ 2 = 90 degrees....
