Plane Kinematics of Rigid Bodies Introduction

We have defined the rigid body as a system of particles for which the distances between

the particles remain unchanged. The motion of a rigid body are of three types :

(i) Motion of translation

(ii) Motion of rotation ; and

(iii) Combination of motion of translation and rotation.
