    Bar ABCD is guided by two blocks at B and C moving in slots as shown. Block B moves downward at a constant speed of Vb = 10ft/s. Using the method of instantaneous center of zero velocity, determine (a) the angular velocity of the link, (b) the velocity of the block C at the instant when theta = 35 degrees, and (c) the angular acceleration of the link.
