Question - Rigid Body Dynamics
When the mechanism is in the position shown in Figure, the velocity of the centre O of the disk is 365 mm/s to the left. Assuming that the disk rolls without slipping, determine -
(a) The angular velocity of the connecting rod AB.
(b) The velocity of the collar B in this position.
Draw appropriate free-body diagrams or sketches to clearly illustrate and appreciate your solution steps.
