Interactive Fourbar-Slider Linkage Kinematic Analysis

Given the link lengths, theta1, theta2, omega2, alpha2, psi, and the coupler point vector, the interface below allows the user to find r7, the linear velocity and acceleration of the slider, and the instantaneous position, velocity, and acceleration of the coupler point P.

Unit Type:
Link lengths (m or ft):
r1: r2: r3: r4: r5: r6:

Mode for all angles (beta,theta1,theta2,psi):

Coupler Vector:
rp: beta:

Base and input angles:
theta1: theta2:

Angular velocity and acceleration of link2:
omega2: alpha2:

Included angle between links 4,5:
