Chapter 2: Kinematic Analysis Analytical Approach
2.1. Introduction
Kinematics is the study of motion without consideration of what causes the motion. In other words, the
input motion is assumed to be known and the objective is to find the transformation

SOLUTIONS
Problem (1): determine the mobility of the following kinematic chains
(1.a)
n = 8: 10 RVJ
M = 3(8 0) 2 10 0 = 4
(1.b)
n = 6: 6 RVJ + 1 PSJ
M = 3(6 0) 2 7 0 = 4
