Block 1 Geometry of Mechanisms

Unit 1 Mechanisms 1; Unit 2 Mechanisms 2 - these units introduce some simple mechanisms and show how combinations of mechanisms are use to form complex machines. The fundamental concepts of motion, such as position, velocity, acceleration and jerk, are explained along with the idea of scalar and vector quantities. Methods are given for the analysis of machines.
