3-D Rotation
1.
At the instant shown, the tower crane is rotating
about the z axis with an angular velocity ω1 =
The boom OA is rotating downward with an
angular velocity ω 2 = 0.4 rad/s, which is
increasing at 0.8 rad/s2. Determine the angular
velocity and acceleration of the boom at this
instant. Then calculate the velocity of point A
located at the top of the boom.
3-D Dependent Motion
2.
The rod AB is attached to collars at its ends by balland-socket joints. If collar A has a velocity of vA = 3
ft/s, determine the angular velocity of the rod and the
velocity of collar B at the instant shown. Assume the
angular velocity of the rod is directed perpendicular
to the rod.
vC=1 m/s
3-D Rotating Axes
3.
At the instant shown, the base of the robotic arm is
turning about the z axis with an angular velocity of
