Polar Plots Drawn by a Mechanical Linkage
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration simulates the drawing of polar plots by means of an open mechanical linkage. The three polar plots considered are of the form with . These can be interpreted as the sum of up to three vectors with as magnitudes and as directions, and can be simulated by an -bar open linkage , with as the direction of the driver bar.
