There is a cam with offset of 10mm. A follower rests on it vertically. When the cam rotates at rpm N. I want to describe the displacement of the follower vertically with respect to time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can be shown that the displacement is 10*sin(wt) where w=2*3.14*N*t/60. But i want to derive it mathematically. Any diagrams will also help.
