General form: I(q) df dt – C(f,q) = e e generalized force (effort) C(f,q) contains coriolis and centrifugal “forces” Explicit state-determined form: dq dt = f df dt = I(q) -1 () e + C(f,q) Note: The inertia tensor (matrix) must be inverted to find a state- determined form.

Lagrange’s equation may include conservative generalized forces. e = e conservative + e non-conservative e conservative = – Ep(q) q E p (q) potential energy function d dt E k * f E k * q + E p (q) q = e non-conservative Potential energy is not a function of generalized velocity. d dt L f L q = e non-conservative L(f,q) is the Lagrangian state function L(f,q) = E k * (f,q) – E p (q) In the usual notation, E k * (f,q) is written as T(f,q) and E p (q) is written as V(q), hence L(f,q) = T(f,q) – V(q) i.e., L = T – V Mod.
