Unformatted text preview: ergy: Principal I: Principal axes: Kinetic energy: Potential Energy: Internal conservative forces: Total Energy: Euler angles: Three rotations are sufficient to rotate a body to its principal orientation 0. Start with 1. Rotate by angle about axis 2. Rotate by angle about axis 3. Rotate by angle about axis Kinetic Energy: For a symmetric body, last rotation is unnecessary Kinetic energy in terms of rate of change in Euler angles: Lagrangian: Generalized coordinates of particles:...
