MACHINE THEORY LABORATORY PRACTICE

Experiment 1 To draw the displacement, velocity and acceleration curves for a slider-crank mechanism.

Apparatus Slider-crank apparatus, graph sheet.

Theory The displacement of a slider-crank mechanism, when the crank has rotated by θ from inner dead centre is:

app01-ufig1

Velocity,

app01-ufig2

Acceleration,

app01-ufig3

The slider-crank apparatus shown in Fig.1, consists of the frame F in which the slider S moves in a slot. The graduated ...
