Problem # p016 |

The shown contraption consists of the two rods AB and BC. Rod AB can
rotate freely about the fixed point A if it were not
connected by a pin/hole connection to rod BC.
At point C a glider is attached to rod BC allowing point C to move only in
the x-direction.
At a given instant in time, the coordinates of point B are : _{B} = 2.5 m y_{B} = 2.0 m For point C we have : _{C} = 5.5 m y_{C} = 0 Given is also the velocity of point C : _{x,C} = +10 m/s |
