A5.3 - The mobility of the mechanism illustrated is m = 1. Use the Kutzbach criterion to determine the number of lower pairs and the number of higher pairs. Is the wheel rolling with-out slipping, or rolling-and-slipping, at point A on the wall? Clearly number each link and label the lower pairs (j1) and higher pairs (j2) on the diagram. Is the answer correct? Briefly explain. Identify the likely candidates to be the input link.
