### Four-bar linkages in ASOMmini (4/5): Parallel- and Antiparallel-Crank

In this video series, we will show you the most common variants of the planar four-bar linkage, as well as their characteristics and special features. These variants can be derived from the theorem of Grashof. Grashof’s condition for four-bar linkages states: The shortest link of a four-bar linkage can fully rotate in relation to its
