Briefly recalling some of the latest procedures of kinematic analysis that technical literature records, a numerical method is proposed for approximate calculus of angular velocities and accelerations in plane mechanisms. The algorithm is obtained by mathematical induction through Newton’s formulae for repeating integrations and it consists of a four points formula of numerical differentiation which is also easily programmable on automatic computers. A numerical example illustrated below shows the degree of reliability of the method proposed.
