Acceleration of a Rigid Body

In a rigid body shown in Figure 1, the position of point P relative to the moving reference frame fixed to the body remains constant, thus,

    Figure 1

   [1]

where v'r & a'r = the velocity & acceleration of point P relative to the moving reference frame, respectively. Therefore, [3] & [4] of Acceleration of a Particle reduce to

   [2]

   [3]

where vo & ao = the velocity & acceleration of the origin of the moving reference frame, respectively, and w = the angular velocity of the body.

Application

(Under construction!) Let's consider a 2-body kinetic chain, as shown in Figure 2.
