A stick passes through a sleeve (in which it can smoothly slide). The sleeve is nailed to the wall. As one endpoint of the stick describes a circle, what does the other endpoint describe? Be sure TO look at Witt Engine before Witt Path.
This is a straightforward demonstration of the problem. Here is a picture of the sketch:
In this sketch the path is shown dynamically as you vary the parameters. This is what it looks like:
