On axial members connected to a rotating rigid element,

enter image description here

we have the following relationship $$\frac{-\delta_1}{a}=\frac{\delta_2}{b},$$

which is based on the concept of similar triangles.
In the relationship, what is $a$ and $b$?


$a$ and $b$ refers to the lengths of the rotating rigid member corresponding to the deformed member that is being attached.
