## What is a Mechanism?

What is a mechanism? 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

## Difference between Kinematics and Kinetics

Kinematics and Kinetics Kinematics: The study of motion without regard to forces.Kinetics: The study of forces on systems in motion. These two concepts are really not physically separable. One cannot design most dynamic mechanical systems without taking both topics into
