The elements of a switching device are shown. If the vertical control rod has a downward velocity of V = 3 ft/sec when phi = 60 degrees, and if roller A is in continuous contact with the horizontal surface determine the magnitude of velocity of C for this instant using the method of "instantaneous center of zero velocity".
