1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Whitworth quick return mechanism. Rotational input in degrees results in linear slider acceleration (output) in meters. Convert this acceleration from meters per degree squared to meters per radian squared. (The angle substitutes time.) 2. Relevant equations Multiplication factor (m/deg^2 to m/rad^2): 57.296^2 3. The attempt at a solution See the above multiplication factor. Is that correct? If so, why is it squared and not simply 57.296, which is the conversion factor between radians and degrees?
