I have a problem similar to a slider crank but not quite.

Fixed points are A and B, all others are free to pivot. The beam labeled 20 is rotating around, at this snapshot 40 degrees from vertical. How can I find how many degrees back and forth the beam that is fixed at A turns in response? I'd quite like to find a general solution

I really can't figure out the geometry for this one
