Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm not sure how to draw a belt pulley diagram and do you just consider the pulley's joint? for example, two pulleys and a belt. so number of links is 2 (or is it 3?) and number of joints is 2..???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and i mean how do you draw a kinematics diagram for belt and pulley..i'm thinking it should just look like the original diagram?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It depends whether the pulley is frictionless or not. If it's frictionless and rope massless, it is negligible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thx i thought it would be negligible because it's not a rigid link but instructor went thru the problem today and he did count it as a link as well as the 2 pulleys. and each pulley consisted of 2 joints, one in the center to rotate about, and the other is where the belt comes in contact with the pulley. not what i found in the books or anywhere online but oh wells i can see his point too
