The instantaneous configuration of a slider crank mechanism has a crank GH 10cm long, the connecting rod HP is 50cm. The crank makes an angle of 60 degree with the inner dead centre position and is rotating at 110 rev/min. Determine the velocity of the piston P and the angular velocity of the link HP.

cannot find any simliar examples in text books or online which will help me with this question.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Really have no idea where to start but i've made a start whether its right i dont know.

Right, first off i've converted the 110rev/min=w into 11.5Rads/s

so w=11.5Rads/s

i then assumed you had to find the velocity at H in order to find the velocity at P

so Velocity at H = (Wgh) X gh

Vh = 11.5rads/s X 0.1m

= 1.15ms^-1

(i dont know if that is correct for starters & how i use that to find the velocity at P then the angular velocity at HP, please help?)
