    Cam Curve Design

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Design a three-dwell cam to move a follower from 0 to 2.5" in 40deg, dwell for 100deg, fall 1.5" in 90deg, dwell for 20deg, fall 1" in 30deg, and dwell for the remainder. The total cycle must take 10sec. Plot the s,v,a,j diagrams. The polynomial method is to be used to solve the equation. For the graphs, Mathcad or similar program is necessary to graph the solution.
