Ans: Problem 24 Page 4.25 of ED - Basant Agrawal, TMH.
2. b) A point moves along a bar at an uniform speed. The bar rotates about its end O at an uniform speed. Name and construct the path of a point P starting from a position 20 mm away and move upto 60 mm away from the fixed end of bar during its one revolution. Draw tangent at a point 45 mm away from O. 8 marks
