The partial derivative of the scalar product of two n-vector functions a q and b qby careful manipulation, is found to be a row vector: Determine the partial deriva- tive of aTb with respect to a if Solutiou The derivatives of a and nikravezh with respect to a are Using Eq.
Then the partial derivative of aTb with respect to a is found to be – 2a 7.

Vectors a and bare functions of q, as follows: Determine the partial derivative of aTb with respect to q. Solution The derivatives of a and b with respect to q are: Find dq where d abc.
Solution In expressions such as abc where several functions appear in a nonlinear form, it is helpful to find equivalent forms of the expression.
Each equivalent expres- sion should have a different vector appearing at its extreme right.
For instance, d can be presented in three forms: Now, these identities easily yield the partial derivative of d with respect to q: First, it is frequently necessary to generate, transmit, or control motion by the use of cams, gears, and mechahical. An analysis of the displacement, velocity and acceleration of the system is nikravesg to determine the design geometry of the mechanical parts.
Furthermore, as a result of the generated motion, forces are frequently developed that must be accounted for in the design of parts.
Second, it is often necessary to determine the motion of a system of rigid bodies that results from applied forces. In both types of problems, one must first have command of the principles of rigid-body kinematics.
Kinematics analysis requires, in general, solution of nonlinear algebraic equa- tions. For small problems with only a few variables and a few equations, it might be possible to write and solve these equations mechamical hand.
Computer-Aided analysis of mechanical systems (Book, ) 
However, for large problems with many variables and even for accurate analysis of smaller problems, hand calculation, if not impossible, is tedious and unlikely to succeed. Therefore, numerical methods and computer programs are the obvious choice for fast and aeeurate solution of kinematic equations. This chapter presents some of the definitions used mechajical kinematics. The general forms of the kinematic equations are presented.
Although systematic methods of deriv- ing these equations are not discussed until Chaps. Several efficient methods for solv- ing lf algebraic equations and nonlinear algebraic equations are reviewed.
Al- gorithms and listings of computer programs for some of these methods are also presented.
