Study of Kinematic Analysis Using Python Programming Language: A Visualization Approach

Main Article Content

Kinematics as a field of study is often referred to as the geometry of motion. To describe motion, kinematics studies the trajectories of points, lines and other geometric objects and their differential properties such as velocity and acceleration to investigate the variety of means by which the motion of objects can be described. The variety of representations that one can investigate includes verbal representations, numerical representations, and graphical representations. In planar mechanisms, kinematic analysis can be performed either analytically or graphically. In this paper we first discuss analytical kinematic analysis. In the present paper, graphical representation of kinematical equation is studied. Analytical kinematics is a systematic process that is most suitable for developing into a computer program. Plotting few points does not provide us with a complete picture of the distance traveled over time. For this we need more points. Program written in Python calculates as many points as required almost instantaneously and help to see the better perspective of the conceptual language.
