Lagrange’s Equations The Lagrangian (a potential function) is Lagrange’s Equations are: Generalized Coordinates Any set of coordinates that complete describes a dynamical system Lagrangian is coordinate free Generalized Forces The corresponding forces or torques applied along the generalized coordinates Includes friction, external, and motor forces (non conservative forces) L = T - U d dt L ˙ θ i L θ i = τ i
Example: Pendulum Kinetic Energy Potential Energy Lagrangian Equation of Motion m l Motor Gravity g I ˙ ˙ θ + mgl sin θ ( ) = τ T = 1 2 I ˙ θ 2 U = mgl 1 cos θ ( ) L = T - U θ τ
