1. Rotational motion
2. Rectilinear motion
3. Helical motion
Rotation:
1) All points on the object move in a trajectory that forms circles which
have their centers on the same axis.
2) The further from the axis a points is located, the faster it moves.
Rectilinear translation:
1) All points on the object move in a trajectory that keep a constant
direction without pivoting
2) All points move in straight lines that are parallel.
3) All points travel the same distance
at the same speed.
Elevator
Complex motions are derived from combining
rotation and translation movements.
1) All points rotate around a central axis that moves along a rectilinear
translation.
2) The points form a helix.
Helical:
Guidance:
Guidance and Links between parts allow for the suppression of motion
that would otherwise impede the proper function of the mechanism.
Guidance is the function of a part that directs another part along a specific
path.
Guidance dictates whether the motion is either rotational (wheel and axle)
or translational (sliding drawer)
