The rod OA rotates clockwise with a constant angular velocity of 6 rad>s. Two pin-connected slider blocks, located at B, move freely on OA and the curved rod whose shape is a limaon described by the equation r = 200(2 cos u) mm. Determine the speed of the slider blocks at the instant u = 150

Problem 12-172

The rod OA rotates clockwise with a constant angular velocity of 6 rad/s. Two pin-connected slider blocks, located at B, move freely on OA and the curved rod whose shape is a limaon described by the equation r = 200(2 cos?) mm. Determine the speed of the slider blocks at the instant ? = 150°

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

Given:

(because the angle is getting smaller),

.
