    - A slider crank mechanism consists of 1 sliding pair and 3 turning pairs. This mechanism consists of 4 links : crank, slider, connecting rod and one fixed link.

    - Crank has rotating motion and slider has reciprocating motion.

    - Connecting rod has combined rotary and reciprocating motion.
