I've attached a drawing, simplified of the layout of the sytem i'm working on.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've figured out a function to give me the length of the beam 'x' for a given angle, easy enough, but i need to know the velocity that the end of the rotating beam moves relative to the lower fixed end, so the rate of change of 'x'.

Now i know that the rotating beams angular velocity is ω=2.289 rad/s and a=1077625 and b=522600 and the length of the rotating beam is 1005mm, and the fixed part is 260mm. ω=2.289 rad/s

Basically, there is a damper attached between the two points and i need to know the velocity it'll be moving at points of its rotation

Any pointers would be great, i'm baffled!
