Dynamics problem: Crankshaft angular speed?

  1. Dec 4, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Kinematic theorems:


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Ok, I'm trying to use another angle, phi, and find some relation betwen phi and theta so I can derive the equation for the angular velocity of rod B with respect to S, but I'm stuck at that point. How should I proceed with this problem?

    Hint : Use the x y coordinates of the crank pin .
