Robot Path Control Using Three Knot Points

Robot Path Control Using Three Knot Points Write a MATLAB program to compute the arm angle solution for three knot points. Write another program to compute the splines required to generate three knot points and to the path of the robot’s hand.Do this problem for...

Statistical Analysis and Manufacturing Tolerances

Statistical Analysis and Manufacturing Tolerances Suppose you must cut a triangular piece off the comer of a square plate by measuring the distances x and y from the comer (see Figure 7.3-2). The desired value of x is 10 in., and the desired value of () is 20°. This...

Optimal Production Quantity

Optimal Production Quantity You have recently taken a position as the engineer in charge of your company’s seasonal product, which is manufactured during the off-season. You want to determine the optimum production level. If you produce more units than you can...

Estimation of Height Distribution

Estimation of Height Distribution Use the results of Example 7.2-1 to estimate how many 20-year-old men are no taller than 68 in. How many are within 3 in. of the mean? Solution In Example 7.2-1 the mean and standard deviation were found to be J-L = 69.3 in. and (1=...

Gauss Elimination

Gauss Elimination Statistical analysis of data on human proportions is required in many engineering applications. For example, designers of submarine crew quarters need to know how small they can make bunk lengths without eliminating a large percentage of prospective...

Breaking Strength of Thread

Breaking Strength of Thread To ensure proper quality control, a thread manufacturer selects samples and tests them for breaking strength. Suppose that 20 thread samples are pulled until they break, and the breaking force is measured in newtons rounded off to integer...
