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
