In this video the third inversion of slider crank mechanism is derived schematically. Its motion is explained using a more physical representation. Links are added to make a quick return mechanism. Two of its applications — Slotted Lever Quick Return Mechanism and Oscillating Cylinder Engine are shown in 3D animations.
