Full Marks 100 Answer any five questions Assume relevant data if necessary 1. Design a 4-link mechanism when the motions of the input and the output links are governed by a function y = 21ogl0 x and x varies from 2 to 4 with an interval of 1. Assume θ to vary from 30° to 70° and φ from 40° to 100°. Draw the mechanism you just designed. 2. A Whitworth quick return mechanism has been shown in fig. Q 2.
