The dynamic synthesis procedures of Part I are reinforced by qualitative and quantitative results from analysis. The principal concern is for the motion distortion which results from off-speed operation and from errors in the model parameters. Elementary direct means for calculating errors due to transient vibrations and inertia force variations are given which eliminate the need for complex analysis procedures. Rules of thumb are developed which enable the designer to choose system parameters to minimize motion distortion and inhibit growth of wear and consequent noise.
