! PROBLEM 5-8

Statement: Design a linkage to carry the body in Figure P5-1 through the two positions P1 and P2 at the angles
shown in the figure. Use analytical synthesis without regard for the fixed pivots shown. Use the
free choices given below.

## Given: Coordinates of the points P1 and P2 with respect to P1:

P 1x 0.0 P 1y 0.0 P 2x 1.236 P 2y 2.138

## Angles made by the body in positions 1 and 2:

θ P1 210 .deg θ P2 147.5 .deg

## Free choices for the WZ dyad :

z 1.075 β2 27.0 .deg φ 204.4 .deg
Free choices for the US dyad :

## Two argument inverse tangent

atan2( x , y ) return 0.5 .π if x 0
y
return atan if x > 0
x
y
atan π otherwise
x

## Solution: See Figure P5-1 and Mathcad file P0508.

1. Note that this is a two-position motion generation (MG) problem because the output is specified as a complex
motion of the coupler, link 3. Because of the data given in the hint, the second method of Section 5.3 will be
used here.

2. Define the position vectors R1 and R2 and the vector P21 using Figure 5-1 and equation 5.1.

P 1x P 2x P 21x
R1 R2 R2 R1 P 21x = 1.236
P 1y P 2y P 21y

P 21y = 2.138

p 21 P 21x P 21y p 21 = 2.470

3. From the trigonometric relationships given in Figure 5-1, determine α2 and δ2.

α2 θ P2 θ P1 α 2 = 62.500 deg
