See attachment for figure

The above figure shows a slider-crank or slider rotating rod assembly for which points A and C are in the same plane and at the same elevation. That tangential velocity of B on the crank with respect to point A is perpendicular to the end of the crank. Slider C moves with a horizontal velocity. The intersection of lines drawn perpendicular to these velocity vectors locates the instantaneous center, point ...
