Machine and Mechanism: Difference between Machine and Mechanism

Machine and Mechanism


If a number of bodies are assembled in such a way that the motion of one causes constrained and predictable motion to the others, it is known as a mechanism.


A machine is a mechanism or a combination of mechanisms which, apart from imparting definite motions to the parts, also transmits and modifies the available mechanical energy into some kind of desired work.


Analysis is the study of motions and forces concerning different parts of an existing mechanism.


Synthesis involves the design of its different parts.
