Further, it is difficult not to accept Cicero's statement that Anaximenes made air a conscious deity; we are, at all events, justified in regarding Anaximenes as a link (perhaps an unconscious link) between crude Hylozoism and definitely metaphysical theories of existence.
This characteristic is curious in the Aetolian tribes which were famous in all time for habitual brigandage; there was, however, among them the strong link of a racial feeling.

The funicular or link polygon has its vertices on the lines of action of the given forces, and its sides respectively parallel to the lines drawn from 0 in the force-diagram; in particular, the two sides meeting in any vertex are respectively parallel to the lines drawn from 0 to the ends of that side of the force-polygon which represents the corresponding force.
The link by which they are connected is a rigid rod or bar, which may be straight or of any other figure; the straight figure being the most favorable to strength, is always used when there is no special reason to the contrary.
The link is known by various names in various circumstances, such as coupling-rod, connectingrod, crank-rod, eccentric-rod, &c. It is attached to the pieces which it connects by two pins, about which it is free to turn.
The effect of the link is to maintain the distance between the axes of those pins invariable; hence the common perpendicular of the axes of the pins is the line of connection, and its extremities may be called the connected points.
The axes of rotation of a pair of turning pieces connected by a link are almost always parallel, and perpendicular to the line of connection n which case the angular velocity ratio at any instant is the recipocal of the ratio of the common perpendiculars let fall from the me of connection upon the respective axes of rotation.
Comparative Motion of Connected Points.As the link is a rigid body, it is obvious that its action in communicating motion may be determined by finding the comparative motion of the connected points, and this is often the -most convenient method of proceeding.
The line of intersection of the planes perpendicular to the paths of the two connected points at a given instant is the instantaneous axis of the link at that instant; and the velocities of the connected points are directly as their distances from that axis.
This cross is the link; the connected points are the centres of the F bearings F1, F2.

A kinematic link of the simplest form is made by joining up the halves of two kinematic pairs by means of a rigid link.
Thus if A1B1 represent a turning pair, and A5B1 a second turning pair, the rigid link formed by joining Bl to B2 is a kinematic link.
In order that a kinematic chain may be made the basis of a mechanism, every point in any link of it must be completely constrained with regard to every other link.
120 the motion of a point a in the link AiA2 is completely con ~ A strained with regard to the link B1B4 by the turning A3 pair A1Bi, and it can be proved that the motion B of a relatively to the ~ non-adjacent link A3A4 is completely constrained, and therefore the four- FIG.
bar chain, as it is called, can be and is used as the basis of many mechanisms. Another way of considering the question of constraint is to imagine any one link of the chain fixed; then, however the chain be moved, the path of a point, as a, will always remain the same.
In a five-bar chain, if a is a point in a link nonadjacent to a fixed link, its path is indeterminate.
Still another way of stating the matter is to say that, if any one link in the chain be fixed, any point in the chain must have only one degree of freedom.
In a five-bar chain a point, as a, in a link non-adjacent to the fixed link has two degrees of freedom and the chain cannot therefore be used for a mechanism.
The piece A~ togethef with the pin B4 therefore form a kinematic link A1B4.
In order to convert a chain into a mechanism it is necessary to fix one link in it.
121) If the link d is fixed the chain at once becomes the mechanism of th ordinary steam engine; if the link e is fixed the mechanism obtainec is that of the oscillating cylinder steam engine; if the link c is fixec the mechanism becomes either the Whitworth quick-return motioi or the slot-bar motion, depending upon the proportion between thi L--~-,,-k-.
What was the fixed framework of the mechanism in one case becomes a moving link in an inversion.
The Reuleaux system, therefore, consists essentially of the analysis of every mechanism into a kinematic chain, and since each link of the chain may be the fixed frame of a mechanism quite diverse mechanisms are found to be merely inversions of the same kinematic chain.
Reuleaux has shown that the relative motion of any pair of nonadjacent links of a kinematic chain is determined by the rolling together of two ideal cylindrical surfaces (cylindrical being used here in the general sense), each of which may be assumed to be formed by the extension of the material of the link to which it corresponds.
To find the form of these surfaces corresponding to a particular pair of non-adjacent links, consider each link of the pair fixed in turn, then the locus of the instantaneous axis is the axode corresponding to the fixed link, or, considering a plane of motion only, the locus of the instantaneous centre is the ceotrode corresponding to the fixed link.
To find the instantaneous centre for a particular link corresponding to any given configuration of the kinematic chain, it is only necessary to know the direction of motion of any two points in the link, since lines through these points respectively at right angles to their directions of motion.
Let a be the fixed link, and consider the link o~ c. Its extremities are ~ moving respectively in directions at right angles to the links b, find d; hence produce the links b and d to Cd meet in the point O,~.

123) be the fixed link.
Consider the link BC,, and let it be required to find the velocity of the point B having given the velocity of the point C. The principle upon which Engels 05:59, 27 Mar 2006 (PST)D
the solution is based is that the only motion which B can have relativelv toan axis through C fixed to the link CD is one of turning about C. Choose any pole 0 (fig.
From this pole set out Oc to represent the velocity of the point C. The direction of this must be at right angles to the line CD, because this is the only direction possible to the point C. If the link BC moves without turning, Oc will also represent the velocity of the point B; but, if the link is turning, B can only move about the ax~., C, and its direction of motion is therefore at right angles to the line CB.
123 and 124) is the following: If points X and x are taken dividing the link BC and the tangential velocity cb, sothat cx: xb=CX:XB, then Ox represents the velocity of the point X in magnitude and direction.
The lines joining the ends of these several velocities are the several tangential velocities, each being the velocity image of a link in the chain.
Acceleration Image.Although it is possible to obtain the acceleration of points in a kinematic chain with one link fixed by methods which utilize the instantaneous centres of the chain, the vector method more readily lends itself to this purpose.
The directions of the radial and tangential accelerations of the point B are always known when the position of the link is assigned, since these are to be drawn respectively parallel to and at right angles to the link itself.
The magnitude of the radial acceleration is given by the expression vi/BC, v being the velocity of the point B about the point C. This velocity can always be found from the velocity diagram of the chain of which the link forms a part.
If dw/dt is the angular acceleration of the link, dw/dt X CB is the tangential acceleration of the point B about the point C. Generally this tangential acceleration is unknown in magnitude, and it becomes part of the problem to find it.
An important property of the diagram is that if points X and x are taken dividing the link CB and the whole acceleration of B about C, namely, cb in the same ratio, then Ax represents the acceleration of the point X in magnitude and direction; cb is called the acceleration image of the rod.
Then assuming that the acceleration of one point of a particuar link of the mechanism is known together with the corresponding configuration of the mechanism, the two Vectors Ac and ct can be drawn.
Then other conditions consequent upon the fact that, the link forms part of a kinematic chain operate to enable b tobe fixed.
Let r the mechanism have a small motion; then, for the instant, the link b d is turning about its instantaneous centre Oba, and, if ~, is its -.
which shows that the ratio of the two forces may be found by taking moments about the instantaneous centre of the link on which they act.
The general problem may then be thus stated: Given a mechanism of which r is the fixed link, and s and t any other two links, given also a force, f~ acting on the link s, to find the force f, acting in a given direction on the link t, which will keep the mechanism in static equilibrium.
