Polar Curve Generator with Five-Bar Linkage
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration plots polar curves traced by the joints of a rotating five-bar planar linkage.[more]
Adjust the relative lengths of the links with the multislider and their angular velocities with the dials to get different polar curves.
The curves have the same color as the corresponding link and joint. You can select one or multiple curves with the list picker. Move the time slider to draw the curves.[less]
