Kinematic pairs are the connection between 2 links that can have relative motion between them.
But In six bar chain as shown below:
There are five pairs for them to be a kinematic chain. But if I consider links between ((1,4),(3,4),(3,2),(2,1),(2,6),(6,5),(5,1)).I get 7 kinematic pairs. I have the resources suggesting that this chain has only 5 kinematic pairs. How?
