What is a machine? A mechanism is a combination of a number of bodies assembled in such a way that the motion of one causes constrained and predictable motion to the others. The purpose of mechanism is to transform motion

## Difference between Machines and Mechanisms

What is a mechanism? A mechanism is a device which transforms motion to some desirable pattern and typically develops very low forces and transmits little power. Some examples of common mechanisms are a pencil sharpner, a camera shutter, an analog

## Kinematic Inversion

An inversion is created by grounding a different link in a kinematic chain. There are as many inversions of a given linkage as it has links. For example, in Grashof four bar linkage, for which the sum of the lengths

## Difference between Double Rocker Mechanism and Triple Rocker Mechanism

Double rocker mechanism is a grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the largest link is less than the sum of the lengths of the other two links. On the other hand, Triple

## Triple Rocker Mechanism

In Triple rocker mechanism, one link is fixed while the other three oscillates. It is a non grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the longest link is greater than the sum of

## Double Rocker Mechanism

Double Rocker Mechanism is a four-bar mechanism. In this linkage, both the links pivoted to the fixed link oscillate. It is a Grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the largest link is

## Real-Valued Functions

Consider the sets A and Z related to each other as shown below: Clearly, every element in set A is related to exactly one element in the set Z. So, the given relation is a function. The element 2 in

## What is a function in mathematics?

Functions are a tool to describe the real world in mathematical terms. > The area of a circle depends on the radius of the circle. > The distance an object travels at constant speed along a straight line path depends

## Even and Odd Functions

How to tell if a function is even, odd or neither? A function is an even function of if odd function of if for every in the function’s domain. The names even and odd comes from the powers of .
