The concept of equivalence of higher- and lower-pair planar mechanisms is utilized in many papers and textbooks without presenting complete proof of this equivalence. This paper attempts to prove velocity and acceleration equivalence of higher- and lower-pair planar mechanisms, and the geometric conditions under which such equivalence is assured.
