Energy Method (Single Degree of Freedom System) Another possible way to determine the dynamic of a system is by starting with the same fundamental properties m , t , r , f , defining the velocity, kinetic energy and potential energy as in (1.1), (1.7) and (1.6), respectively, together with the action L V T x x t L − = ) , , ( & , ( 2 . 1 ) and replace the axiomatic law (1.3) by the EulerLagrange equation = ∂ ∂ − ∂ ∂ x L dt d x L & , ( 2 . 2 ) which ensures that the action is stationary. 2.b. Examples (i) Massspring system Consider the system shown below. Let ) ( t x be the displacement of the mass from its static equilibrium. Then it follows from the freebody diagram shown and (1.3) that = + kx x m & & . ( 2 . 3 ) For this case 2 2 1 x m T & = , 2 2 1 kx V = and ( ) 2 2 2 1 kx x m L − = & , and (2.2) gives = − − x m dt d kx & , from which we obtain (2.3)....
