I understand that defining the path of a joint in a mechanism comes under the category of 'kinematic analysis'. I do not understand why engineers do this,when all they need to know is the path of the piston,piston velocity and piston acceleration(kinematic analysis). Take for example this 90 degree double piston mechanism -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X76HrTygEFQ
Also,is there a analytical method that exists to find the path of joints in a mechanism in motion? Deriving the curve mathematically seems tough.
