This being the case, the various possible motions of a rigid solid body may all be classed under the following heads: (I) Shifting or Translation; (2) Turning or Rotation; (3) Motions compounded of Shifting and Turning.
The most common forms for the paths of the points of a piece of mechanism, whose motion is simple shifting, are the straight line and the circle.
Shifting in a straight line is regulated either by straight fixed guides, in contact with which the moving piece slides, or by combinations of link-work, called parallel motions, which will be described in the sequel.
Shifting in a straight line is usually reciprocating; that is to say, the piece, after shifting through a certain distance, returns to its original position by reversing its motion.
Circular shifting is regulated by attaching two or more points of the shifting piece to ends of equal and parallel rotating cranks, or by combinations of wheel-work to be afterwards described.
As an example of circular shifting may be cited the motion of the coupling rod, by which the parallel and equal cranks upon two or more axles of a locomotive engine are connected and made to rotate simultaneously.

In the case of two shifting pieces this would involve equal and parallel velocities for all the points of each piece, so that there could be no rolling, and, in fact, the two pieces would move like one; hence, in the case of roIling contact, either one or both of the pieces must rotate.
when one piece rotates, and the other shifts, the axis of the rotMing piece, and all the points of contact, lie in a plane perpendicular to the direction of motion of the shifting piece.
That the linear velocity of a shifting piece in rolling contact with a turning piece is equal to the product of the angular velocity of the turning piece by the perpendicular distance from its axis to a pair of points of contact.
That for a pair of turning pieces with parallel axes, and for a turning piece and a shifting piece, the line of contact is straight, and parallel to the axes or axis; and hence that the rolling surfaces are either plane or cylindrical (the term cylindrical including all surfaces generated by the motion of a straight line parallel tO itself).

Sliding Contact: Forms of the Teeth of Spur-wheels am Racks.A line of connection of two pieces in sliding contact is line perpendicular to their surfaces at a point where they touch Bearing this in mind, the principle of the comparative motion of pair of teeth belonging to a pair of spur-wheels, or to a spur-whee and a rack, is found by applying the principles stated generally ii 36 and 37 to the case of parallel axes for a pair of spur-wheels, am to the case of an axis perpendicular to the direction of shifting for wheel and a rack.
The relation between the advance and the rotation, which compose the motion of a screw working in contact with a fixed screw or helical guide, has already been demonstrated in 32; and the same relation exists between the magnitudes of the rotation of a screw about a fixed axis and the advance of a shifting nut in which it rotates.
