Physics 409: Classical Mechanics Fall ‘10 2 November Lecture schedule : 4 November: Chapter Test #4 on Ch. 4 9 November: start Chap. 8, Sec. 8.1;(Skip symplectic notation in Sec. 8-1.) 11 November: Chap. 8, Sec. 8.2 Note: We will not cover Sec. 8-3, 8-4 or 8-6; Sec. 8-5 will be covered later. Reading tips for Nov. 9 lecture : What does a Legendre transformation accomplish? How do Hamilton’s equations of motion differ from Lagrange’s? What are the independent variables in a Hamiltonian as compared to a Lagrangian? For Test #4 you should know or be able to do, among other things: a. how to define Euler angles b. orthogonal transformations c. find components of the angular velocity vector d. rate of change of a vector formula e. Coriolis force effects on motion Homework Set #11: Due Tuesday, 9 November (1) GPS Problem 5.6 (2 nd ed., Chap. 5, Problem 19), parts (a) and (b) only. Note the typo in part (b) of this problem: should be .) The solution to Problem GPS 5.26 or φ ± Goldstein 2
