Rod AB of length 3 m is kept on a smooth plane as shown in the given figure.The velocity of end A is 5 m/s along the inclined plane.Locate the ICR and find velocity of end B.
Given : Length of rod AB = 3m
va = 5 m/s
To find: ICR
Velocity of end B
Using Instantaneous Centre of Rotation (ICR) method, find the velocity of point A for the instant shown in Figure 2. Collar B moves along the vertical rod, whereas link AB moves along the plane which is inclined at 250. Ɵ = 450
