    Here is an introduction to the method of vector loops :[/PLAIN] [Broken] Link

    The mechanism shown is so implausible that I'm not going to waste any time actually analysing it .

    Is this a homework question ?

    One thing I forgot to mention is that between link 4 and 5 is a p1 joint.
