Mechanical transformations in a machine are produced by a certain mechanism and the transformation caused can be one of the following types:

- Conversion from liner to angular motion
- Conversion from angular to linear motion
- Conversion from one angular motion to another angular motion
- Conversion from force into torque
- Conversion from one torque to another torque
- Conversion from one force to another force
- Conversion from one speed to another speed

Example of such mechanism can be found in assembly of a crank connecting with rods and piston. Tuning of the crank produces an angular movement that is transformed into a linear motion, as shown in the drawing below;

As shown in the figure above, the motion of the crank is transformed into the piston force. At any given time, the motion different parts of this mechanism have a displacement, change in displacement i.e. velocity and acceleration. The acceleration produced also increases also increases the inertia forces and hence adds stress forces into the stress that’s has been produced through the power transmission.

The example studied in this coursework, it was found that in mechanisms, the various parts of the assembly can be called the links that the mechanism are a product of series of four links. With forced movement of the input links, also may referred as crank, the output link is mobilized in a backward and/or forward movements.

The input is fed in by means of a motor working at a constant speed, which results in back forth movement of the rocking arm and vice versa for the head (moving back and forth). The movement of the heat can be made in forwards mainly through lengths of different parts but the return stroke is rapid at constant cutting speed.

It should be noted that the motion produced is a simple harmonic motion. The different parts of the mechanism, at any time have a certain acceleration, displacement and velocity. The inertia that results from acceleration exerts stress on the parts in addition to the stress caused by the diffusion of power. For an instance, the rod connected to the internal combustion engine. The mechanism is likely to be interrupted if the slider and the pin are not able to slide in perfectly

Almost every part of the mechanism has displacements. The displacement can be given as;

*Displacement (x) = R sin (ωt)*

Where, R is the radius, ω is angular velocity and t is the time of rotation.

Same is the displacement, every mechanism has velocity. The velocity i.e the rate of change of displacement can be given as;

*V = dx /dt = ωR cos (ωt)*

Where, X is the displacement, R is the radius, ω is angular velocity and t is the time of rotation.

Same as velocity, every part of the mechanism has acceleration, which is the rate of change of velocity. Acceleration can be given as;

*Acceleration (a) = dv/dt = ω ^{2}R sin (wt)*

Where, R is the radius, ω is angular velocity and t is the time of rotation.

The output values of displacement, velocity and acceleration can be calculated for any time moment and/or for any angle. These values could then be used to find out the force required (inertia force) to attain these values, such for velocity and accelerations. The maximum calculated values are mostly used for designing purposes. There are other mechanisms which can be mathematically analyzed, however these more difficult to analyze and require various software simulations.

In this course work, the equation for the displacement was derived in terms of angular speed and time of rotation. This obtained equation was differentiated to get the equation for the vector velocity, and then differentiated again (second time) to obtain the acceleration vector equation. A graphical method is then used to show the results obtained from these equations

The input is fed in by means of a motor working at a constant speed, which results in back forth movement of the rocking arm and vice versa for the head (moving back and forth). The movement of the heat can be made in forwards mainly through lengths of different parts but the return stroke is rapid at constant cutting speed.

It should be noted that the motion produced is a simple harmonic motion. The different parts of the mechanism, at any time have a certain acceleration, displacement and velocity. The inertia that results from acceleration exerts stress on the parts in addition to the stress caused by the diffusion of power. For an instance, the rod connected to the internal combustion engine.

__Velocity Diagrams__

The velocity diagrams are required to be developed very precisely and to an appropriate scale. It is recommended to use compass, triangles, drawing boards, protractor to be able to perform this task. One must also have the required drawing skills to produce velocity diagrams successfully.

__Absolute Velocity__

When a velocity is measured from a fixed point, it is called the absolute velocity. The fixed point can be anything ranging from the ground to any static object attached to the ground. Relative velocity, on the other hand, can be termed as the velocity of a point that is relative to an object or a point that may not be fixed.

__Tangential Velocity__

Consider an example of a link X Y attached to Z and revolving about Z at an angular velocity ω. The velocity of point Y is always tangential or perpendicular to the link because it is moving is a circular motion about the point Z. Traditionally, the tangential velocity is given as (V_{Y})_{X, }which effectively means that the velocity of Y is relative to Z. However, this method may not be effective in certain conditions.

__Acceleration Diagrams__

As discussed before, acceleration can give rise to inertia forces and therefore it is crucial to find out hr acceleration of links to determine the stress applied on various parts of the mechanism. Similar to velocity, the acceleration can be either absolute or tangential. However, we will be only discussing the radial and tangential acceleration in this section.

__Radial or Centripetal acceleration__

At radius R, a point revolving around a centre will have certain angular velocity ω and tangential velocity v. Although the point is never getting close to the centre, it is continuously accelerating towards it. The acceleration caused by the steady change in direction can be termed as the centripetal acceleration. The point that must be highlighted here is that the end of a revolving object or link will always have radial acceleration towards the centre. If this is true then,

The rules must be firmly followed because of the construction of the vector often creates confusion. Again, we can assume that the velocity of point B relative to point A is tangential and is given by

(V_{B})_{A}

_{}The acceleration of Y relative to A is the tangential acceleration since it is in a radial direction. Hence, the centripetal acceleration can be written as a_{R }and is calculated by using the equation given below.

a_{R = }ω x AB

or a_{R }= V^{2}/AB

The vector starts at a and ends at b_{1 }even though the direction is towards the centre of revolving. It is extremely important to get this correct or the entire diagram will have to be redrawn.

__Tangential acceleration__

When the link possesses an angular acceleration α R/s^{2} then the resulting acceleration can be termed as the tangential acceleration. The concept of tangential acceleration can be explained by considering the example of a link AB with an angular acceleration about A.

The tangential and radial acceleration of point B will always be relative to point A.

Taking the vector sum of the two accelerations will result in the real acceleration of point B relative to A. Use of an additional point b on the vector diagram can explain the idea more comprehensively.

As shown in the figure below, the acceleration of B, moving perpendicularly to the link, is circular. The true acceleration can be obtained using the relationship given below.

a_{T }= α x AB. The vector ends at b and starts at b_{1}. It should be noted that the letters a and b are just imaginary. Users can use choose any letters as long as they logically relate to each other.

The reason why it is important to determine the acceleration is to calculate the forces of inertia.

__Forces of Inertia:__

Inertia forces played their part in acceleration deceleration and they mainly depend on the Newton’s second law of motion.

From Newton’s second law of motion, we know that force is equal to the mass multiplied by the acceleration or F= Ma.

And therefore the Torque can be given by the equation below.

T = I x α

Where I is the moment of inertia and a is the angular acceleration

__Coriolis Acceleration__

Considering an example of a connection accelerating at α rad/s^{2 }and angular velocity ω. If V_{R} = dR/dt is the velocity if the sliding element moving away from the centre, then the v_{T = }ωR is the tangential velocity of the link.
