A movable triangle and some associated circles, showing

Drag the points A, B and C about to see the how things change.


A few points to note. The three perpindicular bisectors intersect at the center of the excircles. The three angle bisectors intersect at the center of the incircle. Each perpindicular bisectors intersects with and anglebisector at a point on the excircle. Equlatrial and isosceles triangles have other notable properties.

Four Bar Linkage

Arcot Somashekar Sun May 26 2019

Hello Richard This is a very useful site to teach Linkages and Mechanisms at university. It would be good if: (1) We can slow down/adjust the speed of rotation. (2) Change direction of rotation (to anti-clockwise, which is positive direction). Thank you Arcot Somashekar

Thanking and a Suggestion

Dear Mr. Morris, Thank you for this extremely useful and easy-to-use simulation. If I may, my suggestions would be the additions of (1)direction changing of rotation and (2)angular limiting of rotation options. Kind regards, Cem Kurt.
